Hello world!

Hello World! I’m beginning a blog that will be about the trials and tribulations working moms go through on a daily basis as well as teaching strategies and struggles. I’m a mother of 3 (Boys), a full time middle school teacher, wife, daughter, and friend  who never seems to have enough time for everything. Cleaning house,  paying bills, feeling guilty about the amount of time kids spend in child care, being a good wife, playing/walking my dogs…… It’s Exhausting!!

One of my struggles is time in the classroom after school hours. I constantly feel the need to stay and do additional planning as well as grading and working in my classroom. However I feel I should be home with my own children after a certain time period. The only happy balance I have found is to designate 1-2 days a week to stay after school and the other 3 days I go home at the end of my work day. It gets very difficult at times, but would love any other time saving strategies fellow teachers may have.
