I saw this in new posts and was intrigued. Just wanted to offer up the idea that the OP probably didn't mean to insult teachers, and that she's feeling panicky about a tough situation- she wants to HS but can't due to life circumstances. So she came up with this idea and threw it out there, perhaps without having though much about the ramifications.
Yes, this, thank you. I certainly meant no insult whatsoever to teachers. But as I toyed with the idea of public K, just for a year until we got settled, I realized how much it would pain me to be away from my daughter that much while I was not working. So I'd be off school and wanting to take her to the zoo or whatever and frustrated with some district rule that I wasn't "allowed" to do that. So I thought of maybe a part time school option but I see now how that won't work. And she's really social and I want her to be able to be with other kids. But I do enjoy her and she loves learning things with me.
If I had the means to be a SAHM I'd do it in a second, despite all those years of grad school. But I'm the only income we have And soon I'm going to be alone in a new city trying to find the best option for both of us.
