    For me it's about 4 during the week and 5 on weekends (depending on what's going on). At times like last semester i was at 2.5-3 hrs a night (with a day or two a month where i just crash and sleep for 8 hours straight). It was a very hard semester.

    Talk about indispensible, I'm the only non-tenured teacher to not be let go by cut backs in the last four years in my district. I'm a Special Ed. Junior High teacher for students with behavior problems. One step before the department of corrections. :nonono: If the regular teachers can't handle them, they come to me.

    Oh yeah, I also breed fish. It's actually more of a hobby, though. I make a little bit of money (but not much) and I also get discounts at the store I sell the fish to.

    I work at a Veterinary Hospital. My "official" title is Kennel Technician. I take care of all of the animals and clean everything. When I'm not at the Hospital, I'm taking care of 50 dogs, 5 cats, 2 horses, and 2 goats (and the crazy old lady who lives with them).

    You realize, that students in any sped program have IEPs that must be met by law. Behavior IEPs are just as debilitating for the student as low functioning, mentally challenged students. I question your comment about the other teachers not being able to "handle" them. You must know, that other teachers can or could handle them, it just wouldn't be fair to the other students in the classroom for them to take instructional time away to deal with a student with behavior problems. There currently is a shortage in ESL and Sped teachers nationwide. I suspect that is the reason why you haven't been RIF'd.
