I need advice. I need encouragement. I am about to begin my second year of teaching (on Tuesday). Last year, I co-taught in elementary inclusion classes (Kindergarten, 2nd and 3rd grade). This year, I've been transferred to a high school MOID/SID/PID class and I am scared to death!!! I'm getting depressed. My degree isn't even in special education; it's in early childhood education. I am kind of thankful that I got certified in special education, because I would not have a job otherwise. But now, I'm learning that once one enters the field of special education, it's nearly impossible to escape. I felt comfortable in elementary school, but now...I feel like I'm in way over my head. This is definitely going to be my hardest year yet, and I'm afraid I'm not going to survive it. Please help!
