I put educator: other, because as a minister a large part of my work responsibility is education. I primarily teach classes for adults, incl. special classes for older adults and college students, but occasionally I teach children and teenagers as well.
~Stacey~ In love with my three fellas - dh Paul and twin 3 year-olds Rob and Charlie.
I've been a TA in regular elementary and self-contained special ed elementary, and for the past 7 years in an alternative HS program for students with emotional, psychiatric and behavioral problems who can't function in the regular high school setting.
My favorite was in the self-contained elementary, but they mainstreamed all the kids and made it a pull-out program.

I said not in ed, however, I could make several arguments that I am/have been. First, I'm a parent, and I think that should be an automatic qualifier. (If not, how good a parent would I be?) I have done all sorts of child/special needs care in the past, also.
