You aren’t the only one- my brother is a special ed t/a and


everything you said is the same in Texas. He’s been verbally abused, assaulted, attacked and overwhelmed with ridiculous duties with zero recourse. The kids are running wild with no consequences. I could go on. He has two years to retire with benefits but will likely quit before he can get there- it’s that bad. Just wanted to validate you. Hang tough, brother.

Also, my wife is head of school at a private school and she’s got parents wanting to go on field trips (out of state) like they used to before covid. They have no clue what you teachers and admin are still dealing with. Totally selfish idiots with no concern for what others are going through.

Drink one for me. 😉
