Are you a special education teacher feeling overwhelmed with paperwork and plans? You are in the right place.
You have put your heart, soul, and dreams into having a job that is hard. I know. It is the hardest job short of being a parent.
Why is that?
SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS WORK FROM THE HEART:
I think it’s because…
- We care like a parent.
- We want the best for our students.
- We have high standards, and
- When we are doing it right, it looks easy to the rest of the world even when it’s not.
SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS ARE SUPER HEROES
Teaching is hard and teaching students with extra struggles is even harder. The good news is this job makes you a modern day super hero. I’m serious because very few are able to stick with it for the long haul.
SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHERs UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER
I have been in education over thirty years and more than half as a special education teacher. Even when I go home tired and have white board marker all over my shirt, I know I am making a difference. You are too. We KNOW the efforts our kids make.
SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS NEED TO STICK TOGETHER
Maybe you need a mentor that knows what you are experiencing and how to listen. Maybe you could use a little help to get you over the hurdle. That is why I am branching out of my little room to meet up with you. The future can’t afford to lose you because you didn’t have support.
Take a breath.
We can do this.
