Re: Band Director Couples with kids
I have 4 amazing children and my wife and I work together. I once had someone in an administration try to shame us for having our children at everything and I resigned from there at the end of the year and they havenít had a sweepstakes since we left. I think the deal is that we are parents first and educators second. Or, we are humans first before we are employees. A husband/wife team provide many great opportunities for students to learn what a family can be like. Many of our students donít have that. If anyone ever challenges you because you want to have your children around, there are many districts that will support you having your children around. Go to one of those!! You and your family will be happier. Life is too short to deal with uncomfortable situations. We all have the right to have a family and one of the perks of this job can be sharing your educational moments with them.
