Unfollowing teacher Instagrams

I recently made the decision to unfollow SPED teacher Instagram accounts. I started following because I wanted to get ideas.

Thank you

Thank you, Keltik. I didn’t want to believe that he was purposefully pushing buttons — I try to stay away from negative “assumptions,” but it is hard to when we are at our wits end! I like how you...

Am I the only one who doesn’t always agree with this? I have many very challenging children this year, who have well rounded and attentive parents. We seem to always blame the home life for a child’s...

What are your best tips?

I’m not new to this but I always feel like I have more to learn. I’m a resource teacher for grades 3-6.

Thank you. I also get frustrated when a colleague says “I think he/she is a SDC kid” (SDC in California is the self contained program, in case someone doesn’t know) when we just qualified the student...

Constantly

We are constantly getting emails critiquing every little bit of our IEPs down to an atomic level. And being told we need to comply with every new little mandate (ex: you can’t write dates in your IEP...
