I'd love to hear from other moms who teach high school English. I'm returning to work next week after almost 10 weeks and am getting very nervous. I've always felt our subject area was already so demanding - between reading and commenting on essays, reading for class, reviewing new literature, etc. - and now I'm even more concerned about how I will meet the demands of my job and still have time for my boy at night. I do have two 42 minute prep periods, but I know I will still have to bring work home and night and/or on the weekends. I really love my job and want to continue to do well, but my son is obviously my greater priority. Any tips or positive advice will be much appreciated!
