I live in Metro Atlanta. I am in the Georgia TAPP program (alternative certification). I orginally entered the program to teach middle school math. I am also qualified to teach social studies and special ed. I interviewed with 7 schools in the past 2 weeks and I have received 4 job offers, 3 of which are for special ed positions... I have narrowed my choices down to two. The first school is a charter school in a great location and has a great principal. The principal offered me an Interrelated Special Ed position. I would be in an inclusion class for social studies and science, then I would do pull-out for math and language arts. I will not have my own classroom. The school is great, but I am not so sure about teaching special ed. I guess I just don't know what to expect. I heard that the paperwork/meetings can be overwhelming for a new teacher. I am also afraid of being stuck teaching spec ed. The other school is in a not so great area. It is a low performing school with little parental involvement. I was offered a reg ed Math position. I will have my own classroom. I am leaning more towards the math position because I would only have 1 prep and I would have my own classroom. However, I really loved the atmosphere of the charter school. I guess my question is, which would you choose? Reg ed math or Interrelated Special Ed? Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
