Burn Out in Special Education

This is one of the biggest concerns for those majoring in special education.  We all have to find ways to manage stress... so be sure to do this.  But just don't forget THE mission you are on.  (See below).  Working at the alternative school, there were many times I prayed on the way home from work for God to give the stength to drive back in the morning.  I can tell some rough stories about the things I saw.  And you will have them too.  It's not always the kids either... it's the paperwork, politics, parents, colleagues, the system, etc.   So many times on my drive home and to work, I listened to this song... from one of my personal philosophers, Garth Brooks.  :)   It says it better than I can....  And go find the song, you may just need it too...   ;)

The Change

One hand
Reaches out
And pulls a lost soul from harm
While a thousand more go unspoken for
They say what good have you done
By saving just this one
It's like whispering a prayer
In the fury of a storm

And I hear them saying you'll never change things
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
But it's not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

This heart
Still believes
That love and mercy still exist
While all the hatred rage and so many say
That love is all but pointless in madness such as this
It's like trying to stop a fire
With the moisture from a kiss

And I hear them saying you'll never change things
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
But it's not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world will know
That it will not change me

As long as one heart still holds on
Then hope is never really gone

I hear them saying you'll never change things
And no matter what you do it's still the same thing
But it's not the world that I am changing
I do this so this world we know
Never changes me

What I do is so
This world will know
That it will not change me
