Iíve been a paraprofessional for the past few years Iím a self contained classroom and decided to get my sped endorsement last year. I ended up getting hired in my district (different school) for a resource position. I was excited at first, but Iím nervous about having 15 students on my caseload and working with 2 different teams of gen ed teachers. Everyone has been really nice, but I just canít shake this feeling of anxiety. The anxiety has overtaken me and I canít eat or sleep. I love kids, but maybe I made the wrong decision. Anyone else ever feel this way?

Sounds very typical to me!

You have to realize the experience you have as a para is a huge plus! So many new teachers just have student teaching experience and don't really know what the day to day is like.

Other sped teachers in your building or district will help with questions! Just reach out.
Good luck!
