RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Presently my identity is very much connected to what I do all day, which is a Stay At Home Mom. I voluntarily left my teaching career to stay home and raise my children. It's interesting when people ask me what I do or "do you work?" because I DO work very hard at my job, I just don't get recognized for it nor get paid for it.
As my children are getting a little older I am considering going back to work, for financial reasons as well as because I feel some sort of societal pressure to "work" outside of the home. But with the job market now, especially in education, I don't think I can get a job teaching again. So I don't know what to do or how to define myself now.
