It doesnít happen in any of the districts I work in, another myth of this job. But others say it depends on where you are. If you have Sped credentials, you should be able to get hired pretty easily...

Ask for a new placement. This has already gone south. It sounds like she doesn’t want you there and how she’s already acted is going to get worse. She might be a great teacher, but lots of people are...
