Any fellow teachers out there with breast cancer? I know I’ve seen a few mention it in different threads, but of course I can’t find the exact threads. I thought I’d create a place to discuss managing teaching and treatment, or just a place to talk teaching in general if anyone is interested!

I am an elementary special education teacher. I run an autism program and I absolutely love it. I’m having a hard time being away from my students during my BMX recovery and am hoping to return during treatment when I’m healed enough from mysurgery!
