A high School English teacher...with a Masters in Library Science who works in the library a couple of periods...I'm also the drama club advisor and theatre teacher, and one of the technicians for the new auditorium.
I work for Orange County California Children Services as a staff assistant. I review cases for quality assurance, making sure that they are being processed properly and timely. If I find problem cases I work with our Eligibility Technicians and Case managers to make sure the problems are corrected. I also present problem cases to supervisors in an attempt to avoid the same mistakes again.
I work in various places throughout the Disneyland Resort as Hakuna Makrla's press agent. The job's not bad...I just have to check in with her every now and then to make sure she's with the people she's supposed to be with at that moment and not driving off any curbs...and the pay is good...fuzzy scarves and mini cadbury eggs!! I have one last "business meeting" with her tonight and then my services are no longer required as I'll be heading home to my "normal" job!

Im ever so grateful that im gonna be receiving my diploma in june and yet i dont want it to go waste. Give me your insight as to what i should do, thanks.
Depending on what your IEP has in it, many can carry over into college. I have a friend who is now a pediatrician. He went thru Stanford University and thru med school, with an IEP (seperate test areas, note taking). It depends on what you want to do. You need to go to student services of the college you want to go to.
If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.
My current assignment is Program Specialist at an elementary school. I spend about half my time coaching small groups of students on their reading and writing skills. The other half I provide curricular and instrucional support, monitoring student progress, interpreting data, ordering instructional technology and supplies, coordinating testing, advising and coaching classroom teachers, etc. etc.
I have a Master of Music degree in Music Education, but I only worked as a music teacher for about 5 years when Prop 13 passed in California. Then I taught second and third grades for 11 years. In 1991 I became a Magnet Resource Teacher in Technology. I managed the school's computer and video networks and taught teachers and students how to use them. I've been in my current assignment since 1997, and I plan to retire in 2010 after teaching 38 years.

I'm currently winding down year one of five studying Architecture. Not sure if I'll go for my Masters as my school actually offers an accreditted Bachelors, the only state school to offer one.
I work as a shift manager at the IceForum @ Town Center. It's a local Atlanta ice rink with two branches, the other being office and practice home of the Atlanta Thrashers. The best part, I get to drive the Zamboni whenever I want.
I'm an RN. I've worked in OB for the last 19 1/2 years. I take of antepartum (high-risk pregnancy) patients and post partum (moms and newborns) patients.
I have an Associate's Degree in Nursing from a local community college. I doubt I'll ever pursue a Bachelor's degree because most hospitals in my state don't pay more for the higher degree and I have no desire to go into management or teaching.
