Episode 8: Parenting, teaching, and academia

Welcome back! This week, Martinique and Jen discuss the intersections, opportunities, and challenges of being parents (specifically mothers) and librarians. We talk about how our parenting journeys led us to our career choices, how pregnancy can force some of your personal life out in the open, what we’ve learned about teaching from being parents, and more.

We did our best to explain our own experiences in this episode, but we want to know what it’s been like for other parent librarians or teachers. What challenges have you had? Has being a parent impacted your professional practice? Leave a comment, or visit us on Facebook.
