Hey fellow teachers! I am really unsure what to do. I am 22, and have been married for 2.5 years. I am in the process of getting divorced. I am going to be going back to my maiden name. This will probably be legally official in January. I teach students who are from Kindergarten through 8th grade, all in one very small building (total school size: 150). I am not really sure what to do. I want to go back to my maiden name sooooooon! But I am afraid that it will be hard on the kids. Do I need to wait till the end of the year?
