Hi All, I fell pregnant during my PGCE which was hard but an absolute blessing as we were told we could not have children. To cut a long story short, my little boy was born in August last year (I finished Secondary PGCE in July so was heavily pregnant). I was keen and eager to keep myself up to date with working in school so I have been doing supply since January. However, since April, I have been working on a long term supply in a school I very much like but just part time. I have all my own classes in my subject and they are seeing me as a permanent feature now and I was asked to stay. BUT........I am leaving to get a full time job OUTSIDE of education. I have secured a position as a PA for a director at an estate agents. I was in admin before I started teaching. I know I am only part time but obviously I still have planning and marking to do and I am doing this during my evenings and weekends and consequently I never see my little boy who is 9 months old. I know I am going to work full time now at an office but my logic is that I will be home every night to bath him and read stories and not feel stressed out by taking lots of work home. I can also guarentee every weekend that I won't have work to do. My husband is also a teacher and so the stresses combined can be a bit too much. I know in my heart I am doing the right thing but do you think I am doing the right thing putting off my NQT year for a couple of years whilst he is still so young?
