I tell my colleauges that I want to be like you when I "grow up." As it stands right now, I am a third grade teacher who had my first child (a son) ten weeks ago. I have been battling with Postpartum Depression for the past ten weeks and trying to figure out how to go back to work. I am so happy you posted this blog entry. You have given me tons of ideas about how to deal with going back to work. Granted, I will only have about 5 weeks left (if my doctor lets me), but they are still some of the most difficult 5 weeks of the year. (2 of those weeks will be state testing and the remaining 3 will be closing out the year and report cards.)
This summer, my family will be moving back to the area where our immediate family lives. I do not have a full time job lined up yet. I am hoping to be able to work part time after the summer.
Again, thank you for posting this, and the other awesome things on your site. I really enjoy reading all the exciting and interesting things you have done with your classes over the years.
