Teaching science or in meetings

I donít participate in this system because Iím a specialist. The teachers of those students are required to teach science to another grade level as well and do recess duty.

If the paperwork is the only thing holding you back from getting the sped credential, throw that caution to the wind and DO IT. Your IEPs in a life skills class will likely be lengthier because those...

Testing

Whatís the process for pushing kids through to SPED testing? This absolutely sounds like a case where the kid needs to be tested. See if you can chat about it with his teacher for next year. If/when...

Yep

Iím a sped teacher and I can relate. I taught self contained for a couple years and now I do a pull-out/push-in model. Those years in self contained really whooped my work ethic into shape....

Just remember

This will not be the end of your career. Iíve never met a teacher who didnít refer to their nonrenewal as ďone of the best thingsĒ that ever happened to them.

Your admin sounds like an idiot. For...

Great responses

Loving all these responses. Today she got SO annoyed that the classroom teacher hadnít provided a copy of the notes to the SPED kids before the lesson. Ok, not the best scenario, but why on earth...

Co worker who judges classroom teachers
