I don't think resource jobs are harder to find than self-contained in our district but we are a pretty big district. I hear you on the no-planning time, lunch with kids and having to buy or make all of my own curriculum but I still love having my own room and could not see trading it for all the indignities that come for sped kids and teachers in a general ed setting. I am also not sure that the workload is less since you would have a bigger caseload.
How could you get a resource job? Is there a way for you to network in the district (take courses, be on committees, volunteer for initiatives...). I think once you have some name recognition for the people who do the hiring, you have a foot in the door.
Good luck.
