I am so tired and work so hard, but never catch up. I have been very sick the last couple of months and had other things happen that have impacted my work, like moving rooms. I have been trying to catch up but the days I was out, I was too sick to do paperwork at home. I came in on my sick days (when I physically could) to go to IEP meetings. And now, an administrator has talked to me about teacher concerns about missing speech time. I just feel like I can't do this anymore. I work so hard to keep up and the only thing that has changed is I decided this year, I would simply not take work home. So if I have paperwork to complete, I have cancelled groups if I have had to. I just feel like I am in the most thankless job and work so hard with almost no support. I believe I am going to leave the schools after this year. I am not even sure if I want to continue as an SLP. There must be places to work where they provide enough time to complete your job and that don't expect the impossible.
Feeling very undervalued these days and simple don't know if it is worth it any more.
