    I am contemplating moving out of public education.  Your description could almost be mine--except that I am a special education teacher.

      I hold in highest regard the special education teachers in my district - they are doing their jobs on a shoe-string budget, and back-stopping those of us in the "regular" classrooms with ideas and input for helping our students who are not labeled as special needs but requiring lots of extra help, practice, and support.
      I expect I will stay with what I know how to do unless I am fired, furloughed, laid-off, whatever. I enjoy the students far too much to walk away unless forced.
      I also think urban schools have been taking it on the chin for too long, and I am kind of in the mood to fight. ;)
      We all have to do what we think is best for us professionally and personally. I hope you stay if you can find a way to - we are in need of qualified, thoughtful people in all of our classrooms.
      I propose we hang in there.

      Think what you are doing today. -Fred Rogers
