I was a reg ed teacher for 15 years and last year taught sped...what an eye opener that was...in so many ways...at first I felt crazy but I realized I liked it and I'm doing it again this school year...why? I really liked the 1:1 and small group teaching, I like teaching social skills, I like helping kids learn to control behaviors themselves, and I found that I don't miss the reg ed classroom as much as I thought I would..that has its own work load and expectations too...the IEP'S are hard but I get help from other sped teachers..I guess I feel like I am really helping a group of kids that need a little extra...and for the most part, they are very sweet kids
