Today Kelly at Kelly's Korner is hosting a link up to working moms. I thought I would join in.
So if you are coming to this site via Kelly's Korner, here's a little bit about me:
I am a graduate student in Classics (Latin and Greek) at the University of Vermont. I also work 14 hours a week at the UVM library and teach two homeschool Latin classes. Bech (my husband) and I are CA's (like RA's but for graduate housing). So I am really busy!
Right now I am working because I kind of have to. I mean, I have to go to class, so we would need to use daycare for that. And since I can't pay by the hour, I work on the days he's in daycare. I am able to get homework done at the library which is good. The great thing is that I will finish my masters this semester with no student debt (I have a fellowship that pays my tuition and gives me a stipend that covers our rent!).
Part of me would love to be a stay at home at some point in the future. But I actually really enjoy working. I would like to earn my PhD and be a professor, so I will most likely (except for maternity leaves and sabbaticals) always be working. But the great thing about having a teacher or professor's schedule (or graduate student schedule!) is that I will always have Christmas break, spring break, and a nice long summer break!
