    I am leaving my school and having a 5 year career break to raise my child!! I am terribly excited about being a SAHM but I am feeling quite sad about leaving work too.
    My school is lovely and I really adore my job. It is a very small school and I have taught the same kids for 4 years. I am very attached to them. Some of them have let slip that they have a surprise for me tomorrow, bless them! Even though I know I am going to be leaving to do the most wonderful thing, how can I stop myself from blubbling like a baby tomorrow?
    Did anyone else get emotional when they left work or am I the only emotional fop on the forum :oops:

    Aw, Happybunny, bless you!

    I cried like a baby every time I left a school, so it's not just you. I get terribly attached to the kids I teach, even the ones who are usually a pain in the ar5e.

    Like you, I'm leaving teaching for a bit to be a SAHM so we'll have to keep in touch on here and see how we're finding it. I for one will not be missing target setting and report writing but I suspect I will miss the daily interaction and the kids being sweet.

    We did an algebra code the other day and my bottom set Year 9 (very special pupils) wrote me secret codes too. I was expecting "I hate maths" and stuff but all I got were things like:

    "Mrs Tilco's bady is called Konnie" (she's dyslexic and evidently doesn't know that W is 23 in the alphabet and not 20 as my name is Wilko!)
    "Good luck with Donnie"

    How sweet?! :rotfl:

    Anyway best of luck for tomorrow, if you cry it means you're human. I bet the kids have something really lovely planned for you :hug:

    aww that is quite sweet! The kids are the best bit of the job aren't they? I certainly wont be missing all the Sunday night PPA sessions either!
    It is lovely to hear you are going to be taking a wee break too, it will be lovely to have someone in a similar situation to chat too! :hug:

    oh how sweet!!!!!
    Enjoy your time off
    kids our so great
    That why i chose to work with them
    Im gonna be the same when i leave my nursery crying as i say goodbye
    My little ones have all got together and said they our going to look after my baby when it gets hear and buy him lots of presents.
    They our always coming over and talking to my bump
    Saying "i love you baby Sarah, we love you Collier"
    "Can we play with him when he is born"
    And proudly tell anyone who dosnt know ie...Santa claus, kelly the clown at the xams party even the dance teacher "Sarah's going to have a baby you know"

    One of the children even devised a servey of who thought i was having a boy /girl or didnt know. the day i was gong to have me 21 week scan
    She went around asking everyone and ticked the correct panel for each answer.
    The children made me promise to ring the nursery so they could find out what i was having they couldnt wait till the Monday.
    Im not going back to work either i'll be a full time mum
    It the best job in the world!!!! :D
