Surly and Jov

Surly, you hit the nail on the head. You summed up exactly what I was thinking.

Jov, you also make a good point about the MA degrees. I think what frustrates Surly and me is that this woman, who...

Who do you think you are?

Our Behavior Specialist came to my school the other day and essential told me all about who her favorite teachers were, why she loved them, who she thought was “unaccommodating,” who she thought was...

Ugh

I’m sorry this happened! I worked in the moderate/severe setting for a while and quit pretty soon thereafter because of things like this. Hang in there and try to remind yourself that this job...

Sounds about right

I live in CA and I’m betting Kinder does, too. Before taxes, I make $5,246. After taxes, I take home $3,110. Yes you read that right. I do get paid for 12 months though.

Hm

UVAgirl I can definitely relate to some of that. When a support staff comes in and tells us that the reason we have a disruptive student is because we “just don’t get them” or “don’t have a...

Instead of MORE curriculum based PD...

How about more social emotional PD? Personally I would LOVE a PD on how to address bullying. In my district, teachers are expected to do yard duty everyday. You can imagine all of the drama that...

Awesome

Good for you!!! Thank you for sharing this message. I had a slanderous, unsupportive, &$@hole of a P a few years ago. He was obsessed with his favorites and tried really hard to get rid of his non...

Your best resource advice

Hello, I’ll be teaching a 3-6 resource program this year. It will be a combo of push-in and pull-out. Most kids have between 150-180 minutes weekly of services, with 2 students receiving 500 weekly....

Uugghhh

Uugghhh I hate the possibility that someone would even retaliate over this. It is COMPLETELY unacceptable to say something like that. How disgusting. Trump’s America, everyone. Sorry, rant off.

Grace Dearborn

We had Grace Dearborn, too! She is INCREDIBLE. She did a PD for us on engagement. It was a treat to have her last year.

Agree with the rudeness piece! I often check my phone, lesson plan or open my emails during the PDs but I do it in short segments, so it looks like I’m trying to take care of something and then I...

Boring PDs

Anyone else find PDs very boring? They are often repetitive and are just a form of presenting the exact same content in different ways. For example, this is the 4th year in a row that we have had a...

Agreed

Agreed with what was said about the questions. Try to refrain from a lot of questions about students with IEPs, even though I think it’s a valid question! Yes, admin could misconstrue that as you...

Admin who don’t care about staff

Has anyone ever worked with a P who seems to have endless compassion for the kids and their families, but no compassion for teachers? My friend, who some of you probably read about (had poop smeared...

Agreed

What makes it 10x worse is then being told it is your fault. So not only are you supposed to accept being assaulted and not mind it, you are also supposed to believe it is your fault. Pathetic.

Thank you everyone for understanding where my friend was coming from. She was so upset by the whole situation, with the child not really having his needs met in this setting, the serious health...

OMG are you kidding?!

I have a friend of mine who is teaching a summer school class for students with severe disabilities. Well, on Monday she had a student, who is 13-years-old, take off his diaper in class, smear his...

Formulating an exit plan :(

Since summer started I’ve realized that I just don’t want to teach long term. Things I love about the job: students who make me smile, the creativity I can use as a SPED teacher, working with general...

Thank you

I work in SPED but not in the EBD setting. I don’t have much advice but I wanted to genuinely extend a thank you to you for doing this line of work.

Anyhow, do you just have one aide? If so, that...

Not missing deadlines

I should clarify. I always hold IEPs by the deadline, I just don’t get the paperwork to our district office as quickly as they would like.

Teaching science or in meetings

I don’t participate in this system because I’m a specialist. The teachers of those students are required to teach science to another grade level as well and do recess duty.

“Best for the kids”

Does it ever occur to a school district that if they do something they think is “best for the kids” but completely burns the teachers out, that this might NOT be “best for kids” after all? Example:...
