When I discovered I was pregnant in April, in addition to being happily surprised, almost immediately I started to wonder how this would affect my lessons. Luckily, both 10BH and Emiliano’s family have been nothing but happy and supportive for me.
Now that my due date approaches, 10BH’s CEO Paul has thoughtfully accommodated a “maternity leave” for me. I will have plenty of time for things to settle down at home with my newest family member before I return to my weekly lessons with Emiliano, having the comfort of knowing that he will still have access to lessons with a Role Model in the meantime. I am so grateful I will still have the opportunity to see my Learner through to his graduation in 2015. Few things would make me happier or prouder.
