As I mentioned a while ago, I am pregnant and just officially announced to all my family and boss this week! I am 13 weeks, so this is pretty much the normal "professional" timeline of letting your employer know around the start of the 2nd trimester (I am not really showing and haven't had any symptoms that would require me to spill the beans earlier).
Our school system has two campuses and a nurse on each campus. Although our campuses are separate, our leadership does everything together and I work closely with the other nurse. Both us nurses have had a hard time finding Sub coverage so the other nurse had her boss post for a sub nurse position. So when I told my principal (boss) I was pregnant, I mentioned that maybe when they're interviewing for the sub nurse, they could gauge interest in a maternity leave position. TO MY GREAT SURPRISE, she had no idea that a sub nurse position had been posted, leaving me to feel a bit gossipy and undermining... but I simply assumed the other principals would have told her (I am always the LAST to know anything, so the fact that I knew before her is very weird).
Anyways, she agreed that would be good, and I took the steps to loop everyone in via email. Both the elementary and my principal replied to the emails saying that they are too busy to be involved in hiring a sub/maternity nurse and would like the nurses to be in charge.
Here's the issue... we haven't gotten any responses yet from the posting (newly posted) and us nurses are done next Friday. So... I'm not sure what's going to happen with the hiring process. I want to be involved because we all know how bad a bad sub can be, but I also don't want to spend my whole break managing this process, scheduling interviews, basically working HR.
Any good solutions you can think of?
