I'm a first grade teacher, I have a 2 year old, and just had twins Jan. 6th. So I'm on maternity leave until March 30. I am actually going back 2 weeks prior because of my sub. She has moved my room around so I'm having to go back on the 30th to rearrange my room...she's not doing ANY centers...she's doing them whole group at their seats because she can't handle the chaos, and she's upsetting my wonderful assistant. I went to a workshop the other day because I didn't want to have to make it up and I could hardly go in my room without wanting to take over. So my question is any suggestions how to get through this? She actually gets upset that I don't call her more often or at all and that I call my assistant to ask her to do things for me while I'm driving to the grocery store. I'm home, with twins and a 2 year old...anyone else see any problems with this request?
