Retired Speech Pathologist at School
Public Schools Dirty Little Secret
I was a speech pathologist in a school district and loved my kids and fellow teachers. I had received excellent performance evaluations.
I had helped my district win a due process hearing brought before I was even hired and aimed at district policy. The superintendent even hugged me and cried as he thanked me.
But three years later I was nearing the top of the pay scale and the principal, who enjoyed being cruel, cut 4 of us in special ed-one teacher was on maternity leave for a high risk pregnancy.
I was told that I just wasn’t a good fit, but I knew it was just a cost cutting measure and a bogus excuse.
The good news is that I decided to start my own therapy business working with kids. I have been my own boss since then and I feel so much happier.
The stress of trying to do the impossible with limited resources, endless meetings, and ridiculous paperwork is a thing of the past. T
here is life after public schools and you will look back at this time as the day you were released from bondage!
