  1. Jenn,

    I skimmed and looked at the graphs. I am in a unique situation where I am at a PreK-12 building in which my children are students. We only have 500 students in the whole building. When I was interviewing for the job, my administrator told me that our build is a “family” and looks out for each other. This is a blessing. The principal covered my class while I went to the end of the year preschool program that my son was in. As my children get closer to high school (and take my classes) I am sure there will be new challenges.

    It is nice to take my kids to work/school with me every day. It is great to peek in on them during my planning. It gives me a second identity too. I am Mrs. Gladson and Jaina/Clark’s mom. Also, I am off when they are off. All summer!
