I'm doing a masters in special education. I have 3 subjects done. .. 2 this term. .I'm hoping i can push through.
I'm trying to keep my options open for head of special education or inclusion worker/coach type role. Alternatively I'd like to go into teacher training at uni. ..possibly pursue a PhD.
In an ideal world I'd become a consultant where I help in schools for a contracted term or something and support teachers with inclusion programs.
We shall see where it goes. But it feels right so I know it is a positive move. I'd always thought I'd be a deputy or curriculum leader by now. .. but life took different twists and turns.
In terms of killing my career. .I was very depressed about it for while. Adding the special needs child /medically complicated/sick Costantly/therapy and hospital appointments. ..the reality is no work place would want me. That's the truth.
And I'm not into the sucking it up philosophy. My daughter comes first over my career. And although these things were a huge frustration I've just decided that it's for the best for my situation. But studying and professional development I felt was a good choice to keep moving forward. Financially is a struggle. ..we've gone from 2 pretty good incomes to having less than half what we had before.
But as long as we're happy!
