For all who read my initial post about a friend in special education who was leaving the profession, I am very happy to share that she decided to return as a special education teacher next year. I am delighted to have her as a talented colleague serving kids. Teacher leaders rejoice 🙂 Spread the love and keep the great ones in the profession!
I should also add that I watched many talented colleagues leave once again this year. If you know someone in education, hug them. Yes, right now. (E-hugs are acceptable!) Everyone do your part to keep critical dialogue going with educators in the community. Together, we can make change for these kids. Stay strong!
