Having children as a teacher

Post by MaverickLan » Sat Dec 21, 2019 6:59 pm

Teaching is exhausting. When I get home I just want to be left alone. I feel like I’ve been so over stimulated all day and just don’t have as much patience at the end of the day. I’ve been thinking A LOT about how it would be to have my own children to come home to after a day of teaching my elementary class. I always wanted to have kids, but now I’m a teacher halfway through my 20s and it’s the last thing I want.

Has anyone thought about this before having kids? Is this a phase because I’m a new teacher? Has anyone chosen to not have kids because they’re a teacher?

I really try to go above and beyond for my students and I know I would be that way as a mom. I don’t know how I would do both without coming up short on one end.

I’ve never done anything other than work with children (babysitter, nanny, teacher). Not sure if that’s relevant.

Any thoughts would be great!
