I'm 36 weeks pregnant and I'm planning on my last day being this coming Friday. I'll take sick leave until my due date and start my maternity leave then (or when the baby is born, whichever comes first). I'm in Canada, so my leave will be through the end of the year. They had trouble finding a replacement for me who was qualified to teach my position and the person they did find is coming from out of province. He isn't able to be here until my maternity leave starts as he has to find a place to live, etc. They have someone in the interim who isn't as qualified to fill in for the sick leave. My question has to do with what I should leave for the my replacement? I'm not talking lesson plans. I know the interim person and I'm giving her my materials and the actual hire will be required to plan his own lessons. I guess I'm more concerned about the other things. Should I leave notes about how I've been running my classes? Which students to watch out for due to academic or behavioural concerns? Do I explain my assessment scheme or let him figure it out himself? I've never been on this side of a leave before. I've always been the teacher coming in and not the one leaving and there has always been overlap. I've been able to go in and teach with the outgoing teacher for a few days to see what he/she does and how the kids are. That isn't possible here. Advice?
