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!
I'm an out of field student (B.A. Linguistics and French 2015) and I'm not really sure the best way to go about this. Should I cold-call? Should I email? Is there a standard format for this? I'm taking leveling courses in the Fall and Spring at UT Austin but I have a 5 week period in the summer where my schedule is basically open and I'd like to get a head start on observation hours. Any and all advice is appreciated! I have an advising appointment tomorrow so I'm also going to bring it up then.
Hey all! I'm planning on applying to grad schools for Fall 2017 and was just wondering what kind of volunteer work, experience, etc. everyone has on their resumes in order to distinguish them from other applicants. Is it mainly all just SLP-related experience/volunteer work? I've done some shadowing and currently have an internship, but I don't feel like that's nearly enough. I'd like to get involved in undergraduate research, but my university doesn't offer it, and I live in a town with limited access for volunteer opportunities in the field. I'm always on the hunt for new opportunities though! I guess what I'm getting at is how much overall experience/accolades does everyone have, what is it/are they, and how much is actually related to speech pathology? Any insight would be fantastic!
