Hi everyone, haven't been on here for a while! I am currently working on my intervention specialist (special education) license for ohio grades k-12. I'll be certified hopefully be the end of the school year if I pass the tests etc. I am thinking about switching to special ed from 4th grade ela. Has anyone made this switch? How was it for you? Some advantages in my mind are: 1. No homeroom 2. Small groups/supporting kids in the regular ed classroom but not having to make the lesson plans etc. 3. Could potentially stay at my current school is a intervention position comes open. I like my school and the principal and other people. Cons: 1. Paperwork - but it seems I'll have more free time to do it than I currently do 2. Difficult working with students who have a disability - but I already do that with another fifteen regular ed kids anyway. This feels like I could have a smaller more focused case load of kids.
