I know this answer is not what people like to hear and some resent those that go into sped just to get a job.
Haley23, I personally don't think there is anything wrong with thinking of teaching as a job. I know people kill themselves in this profession trying to live up to what people expect a teacher should be. I was one of those people the first few years teaching gen ed. I'm sorry, but I have a life outside of education and, when I realized that, teaching became more of a job for me rather than all-encompassing. Sure, I work hard, but I don't kill myself anymore for this job.
