I've been teaching for a couple of years now and I'm starting to think that I might be burned out after about 5 years. I love my students, but the requirements my school has for teachers and the constant walkthroughs are wearing me out. I enjoyed reading one of the other threads about careers outside of the classroom. I was wondering if anyone knew of a teacher that had become an SLP. I've been looking into it and it would be a lot of extra schooling that isn't cheap. I'm wondering if anyone knows a teacher who has made this move and is happy with their decision. The actually job doesn't seem that exciting, but it does seem like there is less stress and you still get to have a positive impact on students. What are your thoughts? Or what have you heard from SLPs in general? Thanks.
