Maybe someone already said this, but

it might help to remind yourself that you teach children, and not lesson plans. I need to remind myself of that every now and again, because there is no way that I can do it all. The whole false...

I completely agree with doing lots of

physical movement breaks. I have yoga balls, a trampoline,one-legged stool, and now a spinner in my room. My IAs take kids who need it for breaks in the gym or outside. I also have schedule a time...

Do you know if she takes medication for

ADD/ADHD? Skin picking can be one of the side effects of Adderall, and probably some other medications. I don't think it would be comfortable to wear heavy gloves inside, and it would not help with...

Chances are that they all already have

some experience with pecs. You might consider starting with the schedule (bathroom, recess, circle time, reading time, lunch, bus) for the whole class and the individualized schedules, and...

You are already doing plenty.

I also hope that he is getting some time to relax, and just be. Trust that a lot of processing happens during downtime. What I don't see in your list is anything about being with peers or making...

Maybe you and the teachers can learn

more about what is happening at home and at school, and how the child is progressing or not in both places?

You also might want to look into some program changes that might have happened at the...

I'm confused--one is supposed to send a

thank you for a thank you? I thought the correct response to a thank you was a you are welcome. I certainly believe in sending thank you notes and expressing thanks to gifts or invitations. ...

Yes, you can make an end time.

You are the one running the meeting. After the initial parents are not essential members of the team, but just part of it. They should not get to dictate to all the other team members how the...

I would absolutely never have a 5 1/2

hour IEP meeting. I start every meeting with a start and end time. If there is a problem, we can meet again. I also make sure that the district person is there if the meeting is going to be...

You are very unlikely the first person

the SLP has given a hard time to. Our SLP (part time) is paranoid of anything that she does not consider strictly her job, however small. I schedule meetings 2 or more weeks in advance to give...

Can you do a pre-observation conference, and

discuss your ideas with the observer? The person who observes you is supposed to be an expert on curriculum design, and should have some sound advice on how to hone your ideas. Personally, I would...

I never have the general education teacher

do any of the SDI other than the prompting to do the tasks that I have already modified, or look at the personal schedules I have created. If the students are getting lost in the shuffle of huge...

You can make cereal night a reality this

very night if you would like. Cereal, fruit, milk--its a balanced meal. Those who do not want cereal are welcomed to figure out something else.

As for the hairbrush--we both are fast learners :).

Living in a mess is depressing, but it is not

your job alone to deal with messes, and be responsible for the contents of the stomachs of others for all evening meals. At least that is how I see it, and how it has worked out in my marriage of...

Are you or have you thought about

subbing in the types of schools where you are interested in working? That way you would have a clearer idea of the true differences. Larger urban districts, such as mine, may have differences...

This is the first year that the paperwork

Just consider what kinds of people would

take the time to write nasty things online about someone. Decent people don't do things merely to hurt others. If students or parents had a valid complaint about you, they could have gone through...

Pullout is often part of an inclusion model--

a goal ration might be 1/3 in general education class with support, 1/3 pullout, and 1/3 independent time with g.e population. There will be kids who need more pullout and in class support than...

I've had many students who received both

No job is worth killing yourself over

Everyone please repeat after me....

Inclusion does not mean everyone doing the same thing or needing the same thing! I do exactly what you are doing. I pull for small groups for academics and social skills, also pull for 1:1. My...
