I will start off by saying that I am not a teacher; I am school psych. I was a gen ed teacher before but left the classroom. I enjoyed working with the kids, but it was just too much. I decided that I still wanted to be around kids and help them learn, so I became a school psych.

What I liked about the classroom was working with the kids in small groups and one-on-one when they were struggling. I wanted to continue to help students in that way. Now I do individual and group counseling which is similar to what I liked about the classroom. I also do testing which is individual. Working with teachers is great because I can empathize with them. I think they appreciate it too. Sure, there are a lot of meetings and working with parents, but I have always been fine with that. It's just more than it was before.

I know you wanted a teacher story, but I thought I'd share anyway!
