I found an online school that I thought had to be too good to be true. I got the job, and at first, I loved it, because for the majority of the school year, I worked from home. That meant I could still work but also stay home with my baby. But then state testing hit. And it was constant travel for weeks. It was hard on my husband, hard on me, hard …
