Any other teachers out there???

Through my journeys in Hyster Sister land I've come across some fellow teachers and have even been asked advice from moms concerning their own kids. Just wondered who was there, what do you teach, are you ready for school to start back? I teach 7th grade language arts in a medium sized school in Texas, well at least I did! I found out today that I'll now teach 7th and 8th grade TAKS (statewide test) Improvement classes. I've taught one or two of these in addition to regular one in the past, but this will be an adventure! I'm a reading specialist and have New Jersey Writing training so I'm ready! Our kids come back on Aug. 11th and we come the Friday before. I scheduled my surgery the first available day after school was out to have the longest recovery possible! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

I teach, but adults----I teach EFL classes to professionals - and I had my surgery as early in July as I could so that I'd have time before heading back to work too.
Surgery was 11 July and I went back to work on 17 Sept.-- I was able to schedule 2 weeks of half days, and by the third week was ok, just tired at the end of my working day ( which includes about 1 hour travelling time each way train/subway)

I hope your recovery goes very smoothly!

I teach high school chemistry in a so-called wealthy (we were wealthy before Robin Hood took it all) district outside of Austin. My DH teaches 8th grade math at one of the middle schools. I had to wait until the end of June for my hyst so that I could get all my inservice in. Hopefully I will be ready when we report back on August 10.

Will I be ready for work?

Hi, I teach in an elementary school. I actually am a Media Specialist, which means I run the library, and teach at least 8 classes a day so the classroom teachers get a break. I am at 3 weeks and a day post op, and feel very weak legged, especially around my hips after I stand or walk. I hope this is going to improve dramatically, since I have to return Aug. 9. I scheduled my surgery on June 17, it was only 4 days after school ended, so I could get at least 7 weeks post op time.
I was a bit anemic after surgery so am taking Slo Fe, but am afraid to overdo the iron thing. I had a rectocele repair as well as bladder repair, and had a bad first bm from being constipated. (from morphine and percoset)
Today I decided to start walking in circles around the house for exercise. I am a bit woozy...I have to be ready, how much is too much exercise? I only do yoga, not a heavy exerciser...
I cant really modify my day at work, scheduling is not up to me...I am really afraid I will not be ready for my demanding job.

I teach in a primary school, yr 6, 10 yr olds.
Its a tough urban school with some big behaviour issues. Have had very little support from the school since I've been off and not looking forward to going back which is a pity because I love teaching. So not really sure whats happening at the moment. Wont be going back until sept in any case so hopefully I'll be well recovered by then.

I don't teach, but wanted to post here anyway :-)

I am just an aide, with SSN kids. I have worked 3 days since mid-March. Our elem. sch is a year round school, so I was off track when I found out I was having surgery in 8 days!!!! Dr. wouldn't let me wait. So then I was out 8+weeks after surgery, then school was out again already. I go back July 23rd. I can't wait to get back to work, yet worry a little bit about stamina, cause I will either be there for the kids or I won't. Not an option to sit and rest for a minute. It is VERY physically demandning getting kids in and of wheelchairs. One boy is spastic CP and has to be taken to the bathroom EVERY hour which is just EXHAUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi June E,

I'm a middle school art teacher. I also teach Studio Art to advanced 8th graders for high school credit. I teach in a large school district on Long Island.

So far this summer I have been working on three computer courses for virtual field trips for my students, while trying to relax for September. I'd love to meet other teachers as well. Anyone out there into sculpture like me? I do rubber cast and waste cast molds. What I would love to try is foam sculptures through casts. If anyone has tried this please e-mail me at: [email protected] I'd love to hear how you do this for detailed sculptures on a large level. ~Cyn

Any other teachers out there???

Hi - I teach elementary school, Grade 4 for the past few years. I am an elementary generalist, which means I have "my kids" for most of the day. I also teach two classes of French as a Second Language.

School here ended on the 29th of June, but my symptoms were so extreme that my last teaching day was the 26th of May. My surgery was the next morning. The school hired a substitute for the month of June.

I had about a week-and-a-half notice, so I wrote report cards "to date," and left assignments and tests for the sub to administer. She did the marking and sent me the marks, and I wrote report cards on a laptop computer in bed!

My first day back is August 25th, so I'm hoping I will have lots of energy by then. Teaching, as all of you know, is a high-energy occupation. I'm not sure how I managed so long with the little energy I had.

I teach little ones. Just a preschool teacher...but they read & write and know Spanish when they leave me. Teaching is very rewarding and very demanding. I only had one full week off after my Hyst...very was iffy. Teachers make a difference! Laura
