Student needs

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

Book club

Paras

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!

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...

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....

Explosion

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...

Certified

In our district the salaried people (teachers, counselors and such) are considered "certified". Our paras and people paid hourly are considered "classified". Is that the direction your district is...

My bad! They are actually all considered paras in our district, but I was trying to use the lingo that is used here. I need to proof read better, but got worn out doing that with my boards work LOL!...

Sub situation

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...

It sounds as if your major concern is this one student. We all know one student can make or break a room :)
