Hey Dianna. I’m in the same boat. I’m a Speech Language Pathologist and have been in education for 10 years and in the field for 12. It’s crazy how education has changed. The paperwork, the meetings, the parent pleasing, etc etc. Sometimes it feels like we don’t even have the opportunity to provide the students what they need. All my personality tests say I should be working in education, counseling, and/or speech therapy (believe it or not) too! So I hear you and you are not alone. I considered going back to school for a degree in mental health counseling, but as you stated it so well…”I’m worried I’d be exchanging one stressful and draining job for another.” Just wanted to encourage you and let you know you are not alone. Hope this course gives you the clarity you need for your future decisions.
