Re: Question about working at a daycare

    I'm working at my daughter's daycare and it's going pretty
    well. I'm teaching Kindergarten. I worked out a very flexible
    schedule with the director and get a discount. It's wonderful
    to know my daughter is downstairs. However, I really miss the
    school setting. Since it's a daycare I don't have alot of
    parental involvement and there's not alot of opportunity for
    professional development. I don't see myself there long term
    and hope to return to a "real school" in the future.
