I agree with the PP

and you can make yourself a "workstation..." so you can have them do independent work and small group too.

That sounds Rough!

I think asking for a sub for at least 1-2 days is reasonable.

It should take much convincing with those numbers.

It makes me anxious just hearing your numbers--aaacckk! Good luck with all of...

I can tell what I would do... I too hate change and I hate moving... separately and together.

BUT, what I would do in the situation would be to use part of the pay raise to arrange some kind of...

Wow! and I'm even a SpEd teacher...

With me, in my caseload, preferential seating is rarely about being "up front." You might want to double-check with the other SpEd teachers.

Most of the time, I want them on the ends of the row...

I agree with the PP

Start with some "Getting to know you" activities, any procedures you want in your room and then:


Even later in the school year, I often do an easy lesson just prior to introducing a new concept...

I signed up

the last time this was on PT. It took a couple days but I got a code emailed that opened up the app for free.

I haven't used it in class much yet but it has helped me personally a couple times.

MY gross is a little less than that

and I only get paid once a month. My takehome on my check is a bit less than $2000/month. But my family insurance, dues, retirement, usual taxes, and my FLEX benefit is taken out.

Our subs are certified

I had a 2nd grader

What I've done in the past

Go to a thrift store and get an office chair.

Sit in several and roll them all around while sitting upright. Pick the one you like best.

Then make sure that back is removable. (Just loosen...

I'm in the "Torn" category

I love my job and cannot imagine doing another job-- BUT, that said, if I could win the lottery or some similar thing, I would HAVE to consider leaving.

I wouldn't even need BIG money... If I...

The most important thing is to be flexible

When I interviewed for the MS or HS SpEd, there were a lot of "what if" scenarios. What if Johnny comes in a bad mood and you have a lesson you have to front load for a gen ed class, what if you...

Thanks so much for the heads up...

I went by today and it was exactly as described. I got several really nice things-border sets and large packs of stuff for only $14.00--would have been over $75 original price.

Mine also had...
