I hear a lot of teachers venting about doing a lot of work: doing daily work assignments like tutoring, achievement test proctoring, hall duty, lunch duty, recess duty, heading an extra curricular activity. This is on top of Special Education teacher's duties and responsibilities in the IEP process as a case manager of at least 15 special needs students, and our role as a member of the IEP Team in assessment compliance. Of course, we will never be called "teachers" if we do not have any role in the academic process to support student achievement. Oh yes, contrary to what others say about us, we do a lot of work.
Finally, I would like to share my favorite quote of all time: "Tough times never last but tough people do". This profession entails survival of the fittest, this is for YOU!
