So, I'm a certified teacher, minus the actual teaching job I've been working as a Special Education Para for the past year. The past three months I was given a Long Term Sub position at my school for a teacher on maternity leave. She comes back tomorrow, and I go back to being a para. Feels like a huge step backwards. I know I was lucky, in the right place at the right time, thankful, etc for the LT Sub position. But now its over. It's going to be weird being the little peon, yet again. Doing the **** work of playground duty, lunch duty, etc. I feel like I should start looking for other positions, outside of my school, since there are none available at this time. Or, maybe, stick it out for the rest of the year and see what happens. Any thoughts?
