Being a tractor trailer driver there isn't much they can do to reasonably accommodate me. But thanks for letting me know

tpm, my thoughts are with you.

I worked as an Early Childhood teacher for 13 years.

Previous to my job I served 10 yrs on the state Coordinating Council for Early Childhood Development Advisory Board for Kansas.

This is a job that is my heart, and best of all I was able to work with special needs children and their families.

But, this is a job that required lots of physical activities, bending, kneeling, stooping, sitting of the floor with legs crossed, and working from the floor.

I reached MMI in July on the knee replacement and received restrictions from the doctor.

With my job I must pass 3 different physicals, 2 with Departmentment of Health & Enviroment, and 1 for accrediation standards.

Accrediation standard for the school where I worked requires that all teachers pass the NAEYC Physical, something I can't do with my restrictions.

My employer refuses to offer any type of accomodations.

I have been job seaching and hope I can find another type of job in the Early Childhood profession.
