I don’t blame you for leaving and I’m happy that you did so. I used to be a SPED teacher and completely understand. What you were written up for is ridiculous and honestly stupid. Like you, I took a major pay cut for a better job and work environment, and it was totally worth it. I am now under a management that treats me with complete respect, values me, and actually listens to my concerns while also helping me to be proactive about those concerns. Screw public education and education leaders that treat others like shit.
