Hi all, I have been out on maternity since February and will be returning to school for the next school year. I am really anxious about balancing my baby (four months old right now) and my school work. I want to be great at both. I am the kind of teacher that really needs to put a lot of time and thought into my lessons and usually I spend a lot of time outside of school hours in my classroom preparing stuff and etc. (I know we all do though!). I am sometimes in my room until 7pm or so. I am one of those people who has to be at school with my "stuff" to feel inspired etc. I am really really really anxious about not being able to be the best mommy to my baby girl and be the best teacher I can be. I already have goals for myself professionally next year. I want to take on Guided Math and will try to prepare a lot this summer for it but know that it will be a big undertaking. I guess I am just looking for advice from the teaching mommys out there about how to find a balance and how to be a great teacher and mom at the same time. I am already feeling sad about sending my baby to daycare in August. Any thoughts or advice are greatly appreciated!!!
