Anyone know how school admin feel about pregnant unwed english teachers? Just found out I was expecting and the father lives over seas.
And her follow-up:
Thanks for all the replies! I will be starting at a new school in November and won't be showing for awhile. I just hope they don't fire me and leave me stranded!
Perhaps I have the minority opinion nowadays, but being pregnant and single isn't a good thing. And perhaps it's considered a moral gray area among foreign English teachers here, but it really shouldn't be, as a school should have no responsibility to retain a single woman who, surprise, came to her new job two months pregnant. I can imagine the outcry from teachers if she did "get fired for being pregnant," but why would a school want a teacher who can only fulfill half her contract? And what does she plan to do when it's time to give birth? I hope she starts getting good advice on that thread, and I hope she takes it.
