The 10 things I miss most about teaching!

I have been on maternity leave for about a year now. I knew being at home would be hard. I knew caring for 2 under 2 would be hard but most of all I knew I would miss teaching.
But knowing and experiencing are two different things!

I swear I sometimes have withdrawal symptoms. I think my case would be even more extreme if I wasn't creating products for my store. I miss different things at different times. Like today when I had two overtired, screaming children I missed the naughty students in my classes who I could send to the office if they ever got too bad. 

1.  The kids!
