Re: How often do you use your sick days?
I also teach. I get 10 sick days, 3 personal days, and 3 family illness days. Our sick days can roll over, the personal days and family days we lose. When it's time for maternity leave, you can only use your sick days during the 6-8 weeks following the birth then it's technically unpaid leave. For me though it's all day or no day off. We can't just take a half day. We have a very strong union and they have fought for us to have confidentiality when it comes to our days. We are not made to feel bad or looked down upon for taking our days.
