I am starting my master's degree in reading next month. I've never really wanted to be a literacy specialist. I've always just wanted their knowledge and expertise. However, I've recently wondered what it would be like to be in that position. The literacy specialist at my old school said that it was a very lonely job, because you do not have a "team" in the sense that a classroom teacher does. She really wanted to get back into the classroom, and had to leave our district to do so. I'm afraid that if I made the switch, I would miss being a classroom teacher. Has anyone gone from being a classroom teacher to a literacy specialist? If so, were you satisfied with your move?
