Need some advice please. I had my first child in Feb 2016 and returned part time in Jan 2017 to year 3. Previous to that I taught only in year 5 for 5 years. I got pregnant almost straight away and started my second maternity leave in sep 2017. I missed out on threshold unfortunately. I also really struggled managing commuting to school, childcare and having everything ready for my long term supply part time teacher. She didn't do any planning but her teaching and marking were fab. I felt enormous pressure to try and do it all. My year partner was fab and took on a greater work load, which I feel awful about as I was doing it all before kids! I'm a good teacher. My dilemma is, our school has just gone into R.I. I know I don't want - can't cope - with the work load and work life balance so I want to request to do intervention work across the school. A colleague has said it won't happen because they would have to create a new role. My head is not flexible at all and intimidates the hell out of me. I know my decision would benefit the school but I don't know how to persuade her. Could anyone help?
