Definitely not wrong! I feel the same way, and that's why I don't teach ESY anymore. I'm a mild/moderate resource teacher during the year, but one year I taught ESY with a similar population that you described in your OP. I didn't like it all; I found it to be really boring and tedious and missed doing more "traditional instruction." My kids goals were all related to self-care or very basic life skills (like tolerate a sitting position, maintain attention with an eye gaze) and not academic at all. That was hard for me since academics are my biggest strength!

It's totally okay to have your preferences, and now you know that you don't like this position. It's much better to find this out in ESY rather than taking a full time teaching position in this area! My teammate this past year came from an SSN (significant support needs) position and she found she actually highly preferred that over resource, so we all have our strengths and preferences!
