I am a first year SDC teacher. My students are moderate to severely disabled. I't s a hard job and the best job, too. Like people said, there are many different settings to choose from. Also, know that you will be managing more than studnets. I have 3 assistants in my classsroom and none are very experienced. Managinf adults is also part of the job. If you love kids and b elieve that ALL children have value, are deserving of respect and can learn, I say go for it....
My three year olld 's were born on Christmas. It's not been difficult as of yet. However, we are planning to have a half birthday party every June for them and to celebrate with family on Christmas.

Our family lives in Oakland. (about 45 minutes away from Petaluma). We have some queer friends who live in your town. 2 kids. What do you think of your new town? My partner grew up in Norristown, PA. Anna

No advice, but damn! What lucky kids you have. So many parents would consult a shrink to try and "fix" the "problem" You. Rock!
