Oh, Haley, that is awful! I'm so sorry! I have often been frustrated that new buildings don't always take into account the growth that is occurring (if you need to pull in portables you weren't planning on the first year the school is open, you didn't plan well), but to not plan for current staff? I would feel disrespected, too.

In my previous schools, I would say that sped was often not seen as the same as classroom teachers. I think they were generally appreciated, but they didn't seem to be considered on equal level with other teachers. One year, the school yearbook had small font for all the sped teachers and large font for all the general ed teachers on their pages. The sped teachers were ticked off.
