I am awaiting the arrival of my baby girl and at the same dreading the prep for a sub for 6weeks... wondering if anyone else in here is an educator and what your doing to prep for the school year and missing that bonding with your students from the beginning
I am! I teach 8th grade Science and I am nervous about the bonding part as well.
For me, I am leaving basic outlines of my expectations and also leaving a list of the activities/labs and quizzes/tests that I want students to do for each unit. The daily timing and details is up to the sub.
It is overwhelming...and I am taking off 12 weeks!
Mom to an Amazing 32-weeker
Born early due to Severe Pre-Eclampsia
Yea hubby is an 8th grade science teacher too... he is taking 3 weeks since I will be having a csection. Since we work for the same district we have to split FMLA. Also they count my leave from the birth of baby even if its during the summer :-(. So with my section on Aug 5 I am using my full 12 weeks but only missing 6 weeks of actual instruction.
I guess I will just worry bout it when I return...
