12. Is there any way you can get a doctor's note

for a leave of absence? Even if you have mental distress/anxiety that is a valid reason for a temporary leave. Call around to different doctors. Sound hysterical if you have to...fake it! Many teachers are having issues like this now...it is worth a shot. You can even get COBRA.

I left teaching for a year to take care of my grandmom once. I didn't get pay or health insur though. If you have a copy of your contract check out various types of leave.
