Friends, I’ve been working on this all summer, and I’m SO excited to finally release my FREE maternity leave checklist and eCourse for teachers:
When Sam was born in July of 2011, I literally took a new position (as the testing coordinator) to avoid having to plan for a long term substitute and miss out on the first weeks of school. I’m a *bit* of a control-freak, and the idea of handing my classroom over to someone else – for any amount of time – just completely overwhelmed and paralyzed me… Then, in 2015, when Nora was born in March, I had no choice but to conquer my fears. That’s when my Type-A personality really kicked in and I started making lists and checking them twice!!! In the end, my planning and preparation paid off and my students and I both survived (and even thrived) while I was away and were able to pick up where we left off when I returned eight weeks later. Things went so smoothly, in fact, that I might even consider doing it again… Some day. 😉
Maternity Leave 101 is an email mini course based on my own experience and designed to help soon-to-be teacher-moms prepare for their own maternity leave. When you sign up, you will instantly gain access to my BIG MATERNITY LEAVE CHECKLIST FOR TEACHERS that includes absolutely every step you need to take (and then some) from the time you first find out you are pregnant until after the baby is born. Then, in three lessons, we’ll cover how to set up a long-term substitute binder, write lesson plans, and prepare your students for your time away. Best of all, it’s completely FREE!!
I’m so passionate about keeping great teachers in the classroom after they have a baby, and I’m thrilled to offer a resource that helps to make that possible. Maternity Leave 101 will jumpstart your planning and take some of the stress out of this crazy-exciting season. If you’re having a baby this school year, you don’t want to miss it!!!
I CAN’T WAIT for you to get started!!
P.S. The fun doesn’t stop here….. Stay tuned!
Not a pregnant teacher? Know someone who is? I’d LOVE if you would share this post and/or pin the course image above. (Thank you!!!)
