prayers please....job change

Well, this may not seem like a big deal, but it is.

I am a regular ed teacher, I just so happened to need a job when I moved so I HAD to take a special ed job. Now it's been 6 years in sped and I'm DONE. I'm a regular ed teacher, I cannot do this pre-k type stuff. I cannot do these behaviors that make it impossible to teach. One student switches activities every 5 minutes or she is tearing my room apart. There are people who want to do this job, just as there are teachers who rather teach 12th grade versus kindergarten.

My current principal will NOT move me. I have to apply to other schools. I cannot do this next year. I'm losing 4 good kids and getting 5 more including 3 behavior problems.

I'm actually just babysitting this year. I teach about an hour and the rest of the day is play. This is not what I want to do....ever.

So, if you've gotten this far, please pray that I will get a regular ed job somewhere close so that I won't have to switch my son's school .

Thanks!!!

You've got it! Prayers for you. I'm in a similar boat, except I teach fifth grade and I'm thinking about doing library media sciences. God bless you and good luck!

I'm looking to switch schools too. I've only had one interview. I'm getting anxious and starting to think it won't happen. Best of luck to you. We both just need to be patient and it will hopefully happen. Good Luck.

My husband felt this way and just up and quit. He thought about doing gen ed, but then decided to start his own business.

Feeling Your Pain

I was switched out of regular ed 1st grade last year into PreK-5 Art and K-5 Computers. This was NOT my choice and they KNEW it. I will work one more year, because I get a tuition subsidy for my daughter in private college, and for my middle school son. But after that, I will consider other options. They are happy with me where I am and there is nothing I can do about it--even though they know I don't like it and want back in a classroom. I feel cornered and so depressed. Teachers don't make enough to not enjoy what they do and feel passionate about it!

I am stuck in a job I am untrained for and unsuited for an completely uninterested in, and desperate to get back to a classroom (I'm in the library right now; a deadend waste of time and space if ever I saw one). Will it happen? I don't know; but if it doesn't at the end of this year, I'm walking. I can't do this again and retain any level of self-respect.
