Prior to becoming a mom, I used to be a first grade teacher. I taught for 14 years and for the most part- loved it. I wouldn’t say I loved every minute of it. If we’re being honest here and if you’re a teacher, you know what I’m talking about. But I did enjoy it and found great joy and fulfillment in it. I knew that once I became a mom, I would have to make a decision of whether to continue teaching or become a stay-at-home mom.
So why did I leave my job if I loved it? Why did I decide to become a stay-at-home mom? There were many reasons so I’ll try to explain a few of the top reasons why I left my teaching job to become a stay-at-home mom.
