Last summer, I decided to go back into teaching after taking 10 years off from teaching (I was a kinder teacher). I had such a hard time getting interviews and finding a teaching position. I wanted to explore SPED so I decided to go back as a para in a life skills classroom. I took this past year as my year to prep and prepare myself for a teaching position for this next year. I studied and added special Ed and ESL certifications to my resume. I had been interviewed at 11 different elementary schools for 14 different positions and FINALLY, I got the call for an offer of a resource/inclusion teacher position. I have always wanted to be a resource teacher so I'm on cloud 9!!! Woo hoo!!!
