    I LOVE being a SPed teacher.... the kids are the BEST! the parents are ok, the paperwork not so bad. But the way I am treated by "non-sped" teachers and admin. is what makes me want to throw in the towel. My class is NEVER included in activities by the "non-sped" teachers and barely invitied to whole school assemblies. My paras and I are seen as babysitters who dont know much about curriculum or teaching strategies. I taught Reg ed for 5 years before finishing my certification in sped and I would never go back. I just wish the other teachers at my school understood how hard I work and treated me with some respect.
    I met a woman this afternoon at my local teaching store while I was looking at the latest Mailbox magazine. She started a conversation with me and when she found out I was a sped teacher she couldnt say enough good things. It made me feel good. I"ll keep reminding myself I do it for the kids...I absolutely love them!! And when I'm having it rough venting here sure does help.
