18 year veteran sped teacher; mom to 5yo with SPD, ADHD, and anxiety...I feel like I’m never “off duty,” and tbh—I’m losing my grip a bit.

Oh, me too. I have an 11yo with ADHD and anxiety and a super hard class this year.


I can only imagine, but I’m feeling the same...crawling to the finish line with school. Then trying to catch up on the home front...more exhausting than some people can imagine.

Exhausting is the word. Even other teachers don’t really get it. Thanks for the support.

I am really empathizing with this post right now! I teach special education 3rd-5th grade, and have kids with really intense behavioral challenges. This year, since October, I have been a foster parent to a 9 and 10 year old, and the 10 year old has ADHD, likely had autism (undiagnosed as of yet) and a serious trauma history. She's in a self-contained EBD program, so I am really really never off duty, and it's exhausting!

What does the Investor Relations career path look like for someone coming in at an early-ish level? I’ve heard it’s kind of dead-end and doesn’t really teach you any hard skills but pretty easy, especially if you can produce a decent track record of fundraising. Also, I’ve heard comp is ok and typically lower than consulting (and WAY lower than the investment teams…) and mostly concentrated among the top dogs. Accurate? Anyone know people who took this path?
