Perhaps I am writing on the wrong forum but thought this was a good place to start. Last year I successfully completed two terms of my NQT year before I went on maternity leave. My baby is now six months and I am thinking about returning to teaching to hopefully complete my NQT year -at least. Last year, the post I was in was temporary so I am now searching for a new job. Guess the main point of this topic is to try and get some advice from new mum NQTs out there and find out about whether they would recommend going back to teaching when my baby is quite young and how they manage to do the work/life balance thing? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
