I was just wondering if anyone on here has made this transition and what your experiences were? Was it easy? Did you regret leaving Sp Ed. Did you happily never look back? How common is this? I know when I interviewed for my job and my P was trying to sell me on it, he brought up the possibility of me being able to one day transfer to gen ed. I take this with a grain of salt because there are many things I was told that never came to fruition. I know in my old state was a teacher was in Sp Ed, that's where they pretty much stayed. I think I'd feel guilty using my students as a "stepping stone," but I am considering asking my P if I can be considered for a reg ed position once one opens up. It is nothing personal against my students rather the way our Sp Ed dept is ran and lack of resources for teachers. I feel overwhelmed and that they throw all the "problem children" my way. I do not feel like a teacher. I feel like a babysitter. I cannot possibly teach with the wide range of personalities and academic levels. Most of the time lately, I'm just clearing up arguments.
