whizbangthedirtfarmer: BigBooper: whizbangthedirtfarmer: Special ed teachers need all the help they can get to make it through the day.When I was much younger, I worked briefly for a packing company where about 50% of the employees were developmentally disabled to one degree or another. They would pare the normal people with a handicapped person. (were a team, YEA!) Hey, it's mindless work, so why not give it to the mindless. Anyways, If they had drug tested us, they would have found 90% of us were using something. How can you not pack tampons into a box by hand while your "partner", who has the mental ability of a five year old, talks ALL FARKING DAY if your not stoned out of your mind.God, I had nearly erased that memory with excessive alcohol use./yes, I'm sure I was one of the "normal" employeesI worked in an elementary school across the hall from the special ed teacher. I had some special ed students in my class. After a few years of teaching, I discovered I was pretty much the only teacher in the entire building that was not on anti-depressants, drank heavily, or took anti-anxiety meds. Hell, my wife is still a teacher, and she's had to throw in the towel after several years of teaching and get a prescrip for an anti-anxiety med.It would be interesting to see just how many teachers on all levels are medicated or self-medicating when they get home. I would guess well over half.
