    I’m absolutely miserable in my current position. M-i-s-e-r-a-b-l-e. There were three positions open in my district that I’m qualified to teach and asked to be moved to, but they hired from the outside for all three. I’m bummed. And, TBH, I’m a little irritated. I’ve been in this district for almost 6 years, and I don’t feel like I was even considered for those positions. :mad:

    Just needed a little vent to start the summer.

    I’m sorry... Besides being passed over for the transfers, why are you miserable at your current position?

    I’m in special ed, and it’s not where I’m meant to be. It would be fine if it was a resource room type thing, but it’s not. I have severely non-verbal autistic, ID, and SLD all in one room. I don’t mean all day, there are times when they all overlap due to scheduling, and it just doesn’t work and is not fair to the kids. I’ve had to send my SLD kids back to their room during their assigned time because an ID or autistic student was having a meltdown. I’m tired and exhausted of working my butt off to make sure all my kids get what they need, but it just fails. It fails my students, and my old child is beginning to suffer as a result, and I just can’t handle that. :(

    Ah this explains everything! The other positions were probably much easier to fill than your special ed position. You will probably need to look out of district if you want a different type of position as your district has made it clear that they only have eyes for your special ed certification.
