Hello all! I got my undergrad in elementary ed and masters in communication sciences and disorders. This is my 4th year as a speech-language pathologist and I currently work in an early childhood special education center, (ages 3-5.) It is my DREAM job, and I love what I do!

I'm curious for all of you who have kids or want to have kids... Are you trying to plan/ did you plan pregnancies around summer vacation, or just going for it?Mi corazón

May-July, but that obviously might not be the case because we can't control these things of course. If we don't get pregnant right away, we may take a few months off just so I don't have the baby during the first months of a school year. I'm not certain on that though because it probably would be difficult to just stop trying once we start

Cora: I used to teach fifth grade and I loved it! Hopefully you'll go back soon : )
sweetpeacelove: Wishing you well during your student teaching and last year of school! I am currently teaching first grade, and although it takes a lot of patience with the little ones, it is worth it!: )
tintri: That sounds like a wonderful job, and it is splendid that you love what you do : ) The education world needs more people like you!

I have kids and only one was born during summer vacation. I didn't plan it that way, just happened
Honestly, I prefer a birth and maternity leave during the year than over the summer - my vacation felt like NOTHING since I worked hard during the year, worked hard nursing/taking care of baby (and toddler), and then jumped right back into the classroom in fall. Yay for a baby, but Boo for the teacher/mommy. At least when it happens during the year you still wind up with your summer as (more of a true) vacation and respite from the rest of the year.
