Why I wasn't able to come up with something I wanted to do the rest of my life the first time I was there? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I've changed...lots in the 19 years I've been out of college. I would never have picked special ed as a major back than and now I love it.....who knew?
I love subbing in special ed any age at all...except I can tell you that the little ones wear me completely out. I think it is the level of energy...they have to get it from somewhere so they zap it out of me. Friday I was in sped at Kindergarten and a little girl in the lunch room coughed and told me she might throw up. I took her to the nurse and on the way there a little voice in my head said 'get a garbage can' after passing another room the voice started to yell, so I ducked in and asked to take the trash can. We made it about five more feet and she tossed her lunch in the trash can. I know the janitor and I were thankful for my listening to the spirit.
