Do you think that was ample time for them to prepare for a person to back fill

At 21 weeks. My project team and I are pretty friendly, so I was actually excited to tell them. I think if we weren't, 3 months before you're due is more than enough time to find a backfill.

Chile someone told us 6 weeks out.This was last year during quarantine someone we didn’t know she was pregnant. Luckily we easily found a backfill.

We started back in August in distance learning mode, core subjects only. So no STEM classes. One of our 8th grade teachers was out on maternity leave, so I was asked to take that spot for the first semester. I was a long time 5th grade teacher, so not a difficult adjustment, except for learning new to me digital curriculum.

I have 2 STEM classes for the second quarter. Still online, so my focus is on coding.

Wondering what other STEM teachers are doing online?

I hate Mother’s Day. My mom was abusive, manipulative, and an all around terrible person growing up. Not much has changed. I established firm boundaries and we don’t see or talk much despite us living about 20 minutes from each other. I dread having to talk to her on Mother’s Day because she will turn it into a terrible thing and ruin my day. But then I see my friends who have lost their mothers and feel guilty. They’d give anything for another conversation with their mothers.

How old were you when you had your first child?

I know it's going to be different for everyone, but at one point after your first child did you go back to work? Thinking of kids, and trying to wrap my head around what's normal, and what to expect with budgeting post delivery. Wife says 6 months after regardless of parental leave to recover. Then she wants to ease into it with part time work. Thoughts?
