I all. I am newbie to the forum. I left my job as a montessori teacher to be a SAHM. Now that my son is old enough to stay full day in Montessori I needed to find a job. I am currently working at non montessori school and I am miserable everyday. So much so I am thinking about leaving in December. I'm not ragging on the school because all of the teachers are so nice, hardworking and wonderful but I'm not jiving with the philosophy or the amount of meetings they require. I have been out of my classroom six times already for meetings, testing etc... I really like my children but I have no time to enjoy them because I'm trying to stay in check with the district standards. I try everyday to do my bes,t but I'm miserable, exhausted and already burned out .
