I just wanted to take a moment out of my day to thank you for sharing Sara Blitman's story ("First Person on the Last Page: Never Say Never," August 2013). It's funny how such a little thing can cross someone's desk at just the right time to make a difference in their life, and that's what happened with this article.
I, too, am an SLP who said I would never work in a school, and have worked building a successful private practice for the past seven years. I, too, have two children, and due to my husband's recent career change and resulting changes to our scheduled routine, I am finding that the demands of running my practice and accommodating people's schedules is getting too much. I am missing out on valuable time with my own children. Well, like the article said, "Never say 'never'"—I, too, decided to make a huge change, the hardest decision I have ever made, and I am starting with a local school district this fall. Reading your article was just that little push I needed to stop doubting myself and to do what feels right. Thank you, Sara Blitman, and thank you, Leader, for all the great articles this month. I have been pondering how to present my thoughts on changing things up in regard to service delivery, as I will be the "new kid" at my school—and your articles will be great support for me when I begin to implement my ideas.
