I have my new kiddos with me and I have a three drawer plastic bin for them. One drawer is snacks- the others are toys and art supplies. I only allow them to use technology Tuesday’s and Thursday- they watch a pbs show. I allow them to stay in my room when I ha d a meeting- and I let them know where I’m meeting Incase they need me. There are a lot of staff kids- so they usually all go to the gym and play. Our PE teacher allows that.

These are great ideas! I’ll definitely need to figure out something for snacks. We have other staff kids too and I hope he’ll hit it off with them. :-)


My mom had both me and my sister before and after school as well. She kept snacks and mini waters in her cabinet for us. She also brought some board games and let us write on her board with dry erase markers. We could play but had to get our homework done before leaving the school.

Any other pumping moms out there? I BF at home but pump at work. It’s my second time but it sure isn’t easier

Hi! I will begin my 20th year of teaching in 4 weeks. I have 2 boys, a 16 year old and an 8 year old. I look forward to what we can share as teachers and moms.


Hello! I am a mom of 3 kids: 17,13, and 7. So I’ve got one in high school, middle, and elementary. Lol! This is my 18th year teaching, with most years in M.S. but last 4 in Elementary.


This will be yr 8 for me and I have a 7yr old and a 4yr old. The afterschool activities have increased which makes it sooooo much harder!! Everyday is a new BUSY adventure!!!


18 year veteran sped teacher; mom to 5yo with SPD, ADHD, and anxiety...I feel like I’m never “off duty,” and tbh—I’m losing my grip a bit.


Hi! I'm a mom of 2 boys, 13 and 8. I have been teaching 12 years. I have been very lucky to teach in 2 districts that were supportive of having a family. We can leave to attend class functions.


Found out our bell times are moving up by an h o u r this year!! I have a 2nd and 5th grader in a different school whose bell times are 1.5 hours later than mine. I’m feeling anxious and it’s July!


Okay teacher moms.. what are you looking forward to most about summer?


I'm new to fishbowl! I just finished my 13th year of teaching. I teach k-5 fine arts and gifted and talented. I have 5 year old twins and 3 year old twins. I'm excited to connect with other ed moms!


Hi! Mom of a 2 year old and I’ve just completed year 16!


Just finishing my 18th year teaching. I have a 16 yo, a 15 yo, and a 11 yo. Teens and teaching can make for a long day, but I am so grateful to be teaching in my kids school (its a K-12 building)


My son is acting up at school and I have no idea what to do

Hi! I just finished my 15th year teaching last week. I have a 16 year old and an 8 year old! Glad to be among other EdMoms!


Just curious... In the summer, do you let your teenager stay up as late as they want and sleep in as long as they want? What time limits do you set??


4th yr Teacher - I had my little one in Nov of ‘18, and I’ve been at home with him ever since. I report in 3 days to a new school in a new district! I’m already having separation anxiety! Any tips?!


Hey awesome mamas! What are your plans for when you have to go back to work but your kids are staying home either doing distance-learning or the hybrid model? My three are all in middle school and high school doing the hybrid and are home by themselves Monday -Wednesday. Even though they’re old enough to be home by themselves I still don’t quite trust that they’re on task- especially my 6th grader. Also worried about having to help them with a lot of homework after I get home from work. Ideas?


How many of you do a side hustle? I am curious to see if they are as common as I they are in my community. I feel like I'm the only one not doing an MLM.


I will start my 23rd year this fall with all 3 of my children (16 yo daughter/12 yo twin boys) in the same building as me. What an adventure awaits.


Hi everyone! I am a 4th grade teacher and soon to be mommy! My boy is due in September and I’m planning on only taking 6 weeks off! I’m very nervous about pumping when I return to work. Suggestions?


Hi! I'm wraping up my 13th year. I'm essentially a teacher on special assignment that teaches CTE courses & coordinates all testing for our high schools. I have two extraordinary kiddos ages 1 & 3.
