Hi, I am pregnant, 7 and a half weeks.....and what's that the school term only started 7 weeks ago.....I know, I know.
Now I am in a difficult position! I am a first year grad teacher who accidentally fell pregnant, kept crying after school and falling asleep was not able to get through my work load as I was just so tired. Thought it as stress, when I missed my first period I thought it was stress!
The principal took me out of my class after 4 weeks, when I asked for extra support ( also had an extremely difficult class, this has been discussed with other teachers at this school and other schools by me, who can not believe how I have been treated)
I am now a specialist teacher with a reduced workload and act as relief teacher for the school, still full time.
Principals not happy with me and I discover I am pregnant.
I am waaaayyyyyy to scared and intimidated to tell them yet, especially the principal...I had to ring in sick today, worst morning sickness ever and the principal gave me attitude that it's the first day back after a long weekend.
I am not on a fixed term contract only a one year one and I completely think the principal hates me.
i am due at the end of October, start of November ....can they pressure me to leave half way through the year? I want to work as long as possible as this was unplanned and we are broke and really need the money.
Help me with advice and my rights please, am I screwed?
