Ugh for you

What a bit of a stressor you have going! I would show them the IEPs and the scheduled time. Tell them you are bound by that time and will make it happen, but need them to trust what you are doing...

Basically, accommodations level the playing field. The student is still working on grade level standards but may have something like "use of word processor" to do journaling. "shortened...

Preferred seating

IEP rules all

You go by what the IEP says. If it says inclusion for 20 minutes then you do that. If it says resource environment, then you provide that.

If it is a behavior issue of a student in a gen ed...

I get it

I get what you are saying, I may not have been clear (I've done that a few times).

I guess just keep asking them for the pacing calendars and lesson plans but continue to pull the kids so you...

Student needs

I guess until the teachers can get you their pacing guides and lessons, you just need to pull the kids when it works for you to meet their IEP minutes.

It is busy at the beginning of the year...

Feeling very lucky here!

I have a 70 minute block every day. My contract time is 7:15-4:00 and I'm in secondary. During that block I'm common planning with my team or going to meetings as needed, but when not doing that I...

Book club

Ok, that clip was hilarious! I loved that dome of the characters were from OITNB!

On another note, our book club has grown to about 25 people and I'm not in charge of the questions anymore. ...

I just want to vent about an incident that happened today.

Your state

Check with your state. I have a general elementary ed certificate with specific endorsements, the big one being special education. I have been teaching high school SpEd for 12 years now. If I let...

Goodness that is a lot! I'm assuming you have some more medically fragile students??? I would use the paras to help when your students go to out classes (music, art.....) and then make sure the...

School duty

I can understand your not wanting morning duty.

Let's look on the bright side!
*It's only a couple of days a week.....could be every day.

Prep work

I had one a few weeks ago. The prep was the worst part! I hated the taste (my prep was liquid) and the potty and I became close friends for the night.

Good luck to you and I wish you a no...

Our school was in a situation where we had to spend time in a separate building due to reconstruction. Our principal was new and the main offices were in the newly reconstructed part. My special...

My Alma Mater

My alma mater has distance programs for master's in SpEd. It's how I got mine. The estimated total cost for non-resident is about $16,000. The classes were phenomenal and the learning was amazing....

Once your co-worker starts to explode, just look at her and say, "Not dealing with this today. I have kids to teach," and walk away. I wish you well while you deal with this and wish I had more...

Hostile environment

I'm so sorry you are dealing with this. What you need to do first is address her in a calm manner and tell her simply that you don't appreciate the way she is talking to you. Once that is done...

In our school, if there is a shortage of subs (and it happens often), then we can volunteer to cover a class during our planning time. If we do that, we get matching time. If I work in another...

Contract hours

Devil's Advocate here - Does the principal have different contract hours for some reason? One of ours does so it may seem like he is late every day, but he stays later than the other admin daily due...
