I'm sure this question has already been asked, but I'm new. After taking time off to be a SAHM, I will be returning to education as a sub this Fall. Obviously there have been many changes in education over the last few years. Elementary school teachers, could you please share your thoughts on how this law has affected you, your classroom, and your school? I read somewhere that 40-60% of college graduates entering teaching leave the profession within a few years because they are frustrated by all the demands. It's sad, because I know a special ed teacher who feels that she can't be as creative as she'd like to be because of all that's been imposed on her. Time just doesn't allow it. I would like to know what I'm in for, should I decide to go for a teaching position. I commend you all for what you have to tolerate.
