I've been a special education teacher for the past 5 years. I've mostly taught emotional support at the elem. level which has really taken a toll on me emotionally. I'm getting switched to middle school learning support next school year which I was happy to get out of emotional support. I'm almost certain however that some reg. ed. positions may come open and that I would have a chance to bid into a regular ed. position at the elementary level...possibly a 1st grade teaching position. Please give me pros/cons of doing this is if you have ever been a former special education teacher turned reg. ed. Thank you!!!
