HELP! I am very torn on what to do. I don't want to say I HATE my job but at the same time I cant see doing it for the next 35 years. I am a first year teacher in a severe/profound classroom setting. I have 7 kids grades k-5, 3 of which can be very violent. I don't feel like the behaviors have been addressed by the administration like they should. When I got my first check I wanted to cry! I feel like I absolutely do not get paid anywhere near what im worth. I do not get a lunch or a plan because my kids are so involved. I have 2 amazing aids. I ask for technology and the administration doesn't want it in my class because of behavior some of the kids exhibit. I have monitor IEP’s that I have no time to do when my class is there. Once my kids leave, because I don't get a plan or lunch I technically should be done for the day. Sped Ed teachers around me have aids so they can write IEP’s in class, go to meetings, all while their children are still being taught. If I leave chaos erupts. Is seems insane to get paid so little to be kicked, scratched, bit, and cussed at on a daily bases and not be able to do anything about it. Whats scares me the most is I love this population of people yet this bad experience is sucking my joy out of it! I don't know what to do..... stay?!?!?!?! go?!?!?!?! Does it get better?!?!?
