I think for personal confidence it helps knowing that you are a specialist in your area and generally the only SLP in the building. It forces you to become more assertive in both making decisions for the students and handling yourself in meetings. The kids are funny at any age- I have worked with kids from Kindergarten to seniors in high school. The work loads are heavy and everyone just keeps having our position wear more and more "hats" but the kids are AMAZING and you definitely learn as much or more from them. Good luck!

This is where you come in. If you're a student, you can start asking career questions that will help you prepare for your future. If you're a professional, you can start giving career advice to students who deeply need your advice.
