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...

Right to be upset

You have a right to be upset. I’m hoping that she moved some things so she could work with students, but that’s not always the case. We have some paras that come into my office (I share with 4...

My take on it

I always understood this to be how I analyzed that information I got back. In looking at your information, do you have students that consistently not understand a concept? Have students that behave...

I’m not sure you can have the union rep there as the IEP is basically a “need to know” basis for those involved. What you could do is invite your admin or your LEA to take notes for you and help be...
