Hi everyone! I'm a senior SPED-General Curriculum undergrad here in the Carolinas. I'm currently doing my student teaching and unfortunately, I'm starting to realize that it is not something that I want to do. Certainly, I love working with my students with disabilities but I can't see myself long-term doing this profession. I can see with my cooperating teacher how much work she does and the amount of work she takes home (too!); to the point that she gets burned out. Also, even with my county being in the city, the pay is very low (Thanks NC.....). I'm interested in shadowing an SLP since I don't really know what it will be like anyway. On another note, I'm doubting myself if this is only because I'm starting to student teach and do the responsibilities that a SPED teacher does. It frustrates me how I thought I want to be an EC teacher and eventually realize that it isn't something that I want to do long-term. All the help that I can get will be appreciated!
