    Yesterday things came up with my co-teacher in a meeting with my boss. My boss said we'll all take the evening to think of the options. I came in this morning and my boss said some things to me and then said I can give you the option to quit. I said do I go back to my class or leave and she's like leave.

    I'm ok with this. I have a mom who will give me a full time nannying job. I've never done nannying and don't know how much to charge. I babysitt her kids on the weekend and she pays me 10 bucks an hour. Can someone give me the ins and outs of being a nanny.... like everything with pay and what i should talk to the mom about and EVERYTHING!!!

    I don't have any nannying tips, but I just wanted to say that I'm sorry that this has happened to you.

    While I do feel for you, I think this might be a blessing in disguise. I had a similar meeting with my supervisor in February and she said if I was not happy, I should leave (not put so forcefully, she was nice about it). I knew I had been very unhappy, so I gave my notice.

    I wound up substituting in high school for the rest of this year, go figure. I have so much less stress and unhappiness. And I'm looking for a nannying job for this summer, and then hopefully a teaching job for the fall.

    As far as nannying, pay depends on how many kids, how old they are, other things you'll be expected to do (make dinner? do housework?). I've heard of anything from $25-50 a day around here depending on how much the parent is willing to pay.

    Definitely get the doctor's info, all the parents' numbers, any allergy info, hours you'll be working, how you'll handle sick leave. What are okay places to take the kids and do you get any fun money for activities with the kids? Do you get vacation time (and do you get paid if they're on vacation to hold the child's spot)? Are you paid under the table or will they be filing you for taxes?

    Good luck on your new adventure! :)

    Miss J. has great advice for what info you need to collect from the parent(s).

    I agree, it's more than likely a blessing in disguise!
