School Psychologists in charter schools- worth it?

I have been a school psych for going on 7 years. I have gotten to do a lot in the last few years as far as creating programs, being a positive agent for change, presenting at conferences, etc. Last year and this year, however, the district has had me take on a lot more administrative responsibilities like smoothing over other peoples’ mistakes with meetings, dealing with difficult parents, etc.

I just had a baby in December. My commute to work is an hour each way. There is a charter school down the street from my house with an open position. I’m thinking of applying but was always under the impression that all it is are triennials, writing reports and going to IEPs. Does anyone have experience in a charter school? What are your roles there? Do you like it?
