Hi all, I am not sure if I am asking for suggestions or just need to write this down... either way I will take your thoughts and ideas. I have always had a very good relationship with my grade level team. We have worked together for about 6 years now and always got along quite well. Last year I was on maternity leave from February until August. This year I am feeling that I have no connection to any other teachers at my school including those on my team. I am not sure what to do about it but it is depressing me. I am a new mom, a new working mom and have been out of the loop for 6 ish months and I really feel I need support and someone on my side and I am just feeling so out of the loop. I try to make the effort to strike up conversations or talk about lessons/plans etc. but it isn't reciprocated this year at all... Did I get forgoten? Did I do something wrong? I am feel so alienated this year... Ugh! Thanks for reading!!!
