I am just totally dried up as a sped teacher. I have done ten years of it. I asked for a change last year, practically begged. No deal. Lots of other teachers changed positions, but I was told it was too hard to switch me into a different job. No other sped teachers to hire. It's not like I can just quit and get another job. so what is a person to do? The system is killing me. Too many hours of meetings and complaints and behavior issues. No lunches. Extra recess duty. etc. etc. I'm paying the price. I just can not get excited this year to go back. Its more like dread. Anyone else in the same boat?
