...tomorrow. My maternity leave/FMLA is officially over, apparently, and I am back to work as a School Psychologist tomorrow. For those of you wondering what a School Psychologist does exactly, its not counseling, we have school counselors for that. I actually work with Special Education eligibility, doing some testing, some educational planning, lots of paperwork, keeping up with the laws (IDEA fun stuff) relating to disability rights, meetings, and problem solving. That's what I do in a nutshell, at least in my district.
My job is not that bad at all, although its not what I thought it would be when I began grad school. My boss is great and very supportive (and flexible...which is why I will get to do some paperwork at home!). I enjoy my co-workers (99 % of them!!) And its only a temporary situation, my working, until the end of the school year so we can keep our health insurance (hubby's work doesn't cover me and the munchkin). Even so, I am sad to leave my baby girl with someone else for so many hours. I want to tell myself that it will just get easier, but I somehow don't think it will (and maybe shouldn't?)
