Right now I am a teacher. I am also taking masters classes. DH and I decided to try in July for our first and I have went back and forth if I wanted to work or stay at home. It is very important to me not to take any time away from my kids in the early years. However, my husband does work from home and would be able to be there with them (and probably not get as much work done during the day and have to work in the evening when I'm home). Ideally, it would be nice to switch to part time work, but I am not sure what work I could do outside of teaching (since it wouldn't be offered part time) with my degree. I have heard of teachers working the morning and another teacher working in the afternoon, which would be perfect for me. I don't know of any schools that would do this other than maybe for a kindergarten teacher (since they have am/pm kindergarten). Right now I work in private school, so I wouldn't be losing a benefit package (since it's not offered).
If there are any BTDT moms or someone in a similar situation that could offer advice that would be great!
