Wasn't sure what to title this... I went back into the classroom after 6 years at home. I have a 1st grader and a kindergartener. I am teaching at a nearby district (school is about 15 min away). I decided to take my girls with me this year thinking it would be easier to have them with me. In many ways it is. We all leave together, come home together and I'm not spending money on childcare. My girls see me throughout the day. But it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. My youngest is BUSY! So sitting in my room isn't "enough" for you after sitting in her own classroom all day. She needs to run, jump, and play. Needless to say I get very little done and she stays in trouble for getting into everything. Plus as they get older transportation to and from jr high/high school might be a lot harder. So, what do other teacher moms do? Same school or neighborhood school??
