Surviving the M-F Working Mom Game Like a Boss

One year ago, I was a naively pregnant, working woman. I have the type of personality that is pretty “Type A” about most things, super-efficient when it comes to getting work and personal items done, and not very empathetic when it comes to understanding people who are not like minded (a huge character flaw, I […]

What Now? [ I Quit My Job ]

No one I talked to blamed me or questioned what I was doing. When I told them that I was quitting teaching they all just nodded or said they understood. A few told me, “If I was 10 years younger”. I had been working with children for over 10 years. 6 of those years were […]
