I had a 1:1 space for him last year, but it didn’t have very good physical boundaries. I’ve rearranged my room to (hopefully) provide that this year.

Last year as my first to teach sped, and I'm pretty sure our program is a little out of whack in some areas, so take this reply for what it's worth.

Welp, here I am

As far as I know, no other gen ed spots are going to open up in my district (not like they'd move me anyway). :mad: And, I haven't gotten a call from any of the other resumes I've sent out, so here I...

Wow. Wow. Wow. Hugs to your friend and her aides. Don’t send me to hell for this, but sped teachers shouldn’t have to endure this. Isn’t there such thing as “workplace safety”??
