When I reentered teaching 25 years ago, I started as a sub, then a full time
teacher in our program for kids like yours. It is tough, but I grew to love
it (even when one kid stole my brand new car, and wrecked it.) I stayed
twelve years. You have no access to kids phone numbers???? Incredible. How are
you supposed to communicate with parents, set up meetings, etc? I honestly
have never heard of such a set up.
With great empathy and respect,
