I'm currently on month 8 of my maternity leave and due back in June. School have offered me a job share which I think will be 2.5 days a week. I have since applied for another job as an education coordinator for a local charity and just waiting to hear back. Its a pay cut but less hours and Im imagining less stress and better work life balance. Am I mad? Should I just suck it up and go back to teaching? I just cant imagine on 2.5 days my workload actually being any better than it was before and my priorities have now massively shifted! I want to spend my days not at work with my daughter but are part time teaching jobs becoming scarce?
