  1. Hi Emily! I enjoyed reading your post. I can totally relate as I’m also a (former) teacher and relatively new mommy. I had a hard time figuring out when to tell my boss and colleagues when I was pregnant, too. That would be SO great if you were able to take 12 months off – you definitely would never regret that time! Also, after I had my first son, I taught an online class for a year. This was so incredibly helpful as I was able to work from home while taking care of my new bundle. Maybe that’s an option that’s where you’re at? In any case, I hope that you have a smooth and enjoyable pregnancy 🙂

    We have it pretty good in the education department and if you do take both forms of leave, you can make it to 12 months. I think I may have even had some overlap.

    This is mainly because the departmental leave excludes holidays (where your pay actually increases to the rate you woukd normally be paid). One thing to watch out for is the set of christmas holidays following your return. The period you are on the givernment leave is considered leave without pay from the department…so it may mean that you miss out on a but of that end of year holiday pay.
