Hi all,

I'm uploading documents as I finish them (works best for me), but I'm a little brain dead with a lot of other things going on lately.

Is this bad?

Is it bad to say that I miss some of the kids and others I'm kind of glad to have the break from? What I really miss is working with them. Sure, I can do stuff at home, but it's not quite the same....

I really appreciate this :). I'm sure the dates will change, but I like things in my calendar or I tend to procrastinate.

Hope I can help

Question 1: Yes and No. Yes they help you and the student, but no they don't come to the IEPs. You can get anecdotal notes from them if they work with a particular student in a push-in class, but...

Your co-teacher sounds toxic. If she was sued by parents for emotional distress, why does she still have a job in that school?

If she is negative then counter it with positive (it looks like you...
