There comes a time in every woman's life when she has to choose between her family and her profession. Some women can afford help or have parents/supportive husbands who pitch in to bring up the children if she chooses to restart her career. But mostly, the prime responsibility to raise the children is put on the woman's shoulders.
Women today, along with taking care of their children, want to continue earning considering that to raise children on a single salary is very difficult. Also, women do not want to lose their financial independence. At the same time they do not want to compromise on the kind of care they give to their children either.

When children are small, a woman can take up just two to three shifts a week. When they are a bit grown up and the woman is ready for a full-time job, she can start with one shift everyday, decreasing the number of shifts as and when required.
Salary wise too teaching jobs are better than many other part-time jobs, which a woman might be considering.
