Talking to a colleague today we got on the topic of switching positions and why were are X grade level, etc. The gist of it was depending on the grade level being mentally or physically exhausted. I've been doing sped long enough to where I'm just plum mentally exhausted and that affects me more because my brain is up top and it just shuts down everything else like I'm a robot that's been powered down or something. She said she'd never consider Kinder because there's exhausting and that's when we realized it's more physical at least for us and for her that affects her more. Verses me I can be physically drained and give myself some energy but get me mentally drained and I'm just useless. I'd say PK-2 = just physical exhaustion vs 3-5 = mentally draining. Would you say this is somewhat accurate? Or at least to you? Which do you find affects you more? Is it by grade level? A combo?
