Then real life happened. I went to school to be a teacher. In the first 5 years of my career, I learned some very valuable lessons. I learned that I’m on duty even when I’m not. I learned that even as rewarding as it is to help kids learn that I’m not only working when they’re in school from 8:30- 3:30 Monday to Friday. Nope, I’m working from roughly 7:45am- 7 or 8pm. My teaching career TOOK OVER my life. It was all I did.
We welcomed our daughter into the world on September 3, 2018 and I can remember saying “I wish I was at school right now” while I was in labour.. I didn’t want to miss a thing. My mat leave was hard. I wanted to be at school, not at home. I even went back to work from my Mat leave EARLY.
I remember thinking in that moment “I will NOT miss another huge milestone like that”
I put my nose to the grindstone and found a way to make that happen. I take about my solution in the video above.
