A update on my life: Had my baby about a month ago. She's super cute. I also accepted a new teaching position despite the debate of whether I should just take the year off and all that. On that subject, we went over finances and found it just wasn't going to work out. It sucks, but oh well. I accepted a job at a charter school. The salary was very competitive, the charter has an excellent reputation, and it's a new campus they're building. I confess I was excited to be part of a new campus. Because it's a new job, I don't get FMLA, so I'm using the rest of the summer as my "maternity leave". And yet... I'm feeling a lot of pressure to work. Yes, it's still summer, no, my contract technically hasn't yet started. I also get that with a brand-new campus, administration wants to get things going and looking good for the start of the year. I'm receiving "checking in" emails, asked about how my classroom set-up is going (it's not), and there's all this highly-suggested training to do on our own. I might be just annoyed because not only do I want to enjoy my baby my philosophy is to also avoid lots of schoolwork in the summer. Does this make me irresponsible in this scenario? Or is this a red flag of an overworking culture?
