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.

I teach HS SpEd

I had a 2nd grader

last year in my sped room who needed this and the PT recommended a "cave."

We hung a sheet/curtain over three sides of a rectangle table with a Kinder mat, a pillow and a comfort toy in there. ...

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...

With this population, you probably also cover life skills, communication skills, social skills and a litany of others--movies are perfect for those lessons. Even in the case of Job skills--could you...

Open House?

My District does BTSN the Tuesday night before the first day on Thursday. It works out well as it forces everyone to have their rooms ready a day ahead. That Wednesday I work on curriculum and...

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...

I do more of a color theme than a true theme

but I think either one of those has a lot of potential. Lots of fun, bright colors and such.

My only word of warning would be to be aware of the use of clowns. Though they are supposed to be fun...

The most important thing is to be flexible

I too am the self contained EBD teacher at my school. Like a PP, I have some that are with me all day (truly SC) and some that move in between me and the other SpEd teachers and maybe 1 or 2 gen ed...

PEPteach is on the right track...

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...

This is a great reminder...

I really, really struggled for a long time with my machine and mask. I too tried several masks before choosing the nasal type. I still toss and turn all night but I sleep better overall.

8 hour drive one way ..

I drove up the night before, stayed in a hotel, drove home after. I did not get the job.

BUT they shared my name with a neighboring district and I got that job without another interview.

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...

it would probably mean that the P liked you and you were HIS choice but HR or the Board had someone else in mind...or you failed a reference check.

Our school is an A+ school and

the kids are required to do so many hours of "tutoring" or other approved types of community service for at least two years. If all of the criteria is met, the HS students can get tuition assistance...

Take this for what its worth

I teach SpEd for MS and HS. My ELA and Reading blocks for resource look very different from those for self contained.

And to follow through

I think it shows up later in 2nd-12th grade when they don't know how to follow rules or take turns or ... whatever.

We have middle schoolers who still engage in parallel play because they never...

I think it would depend on a number

Are they gambling? is money or other bets involved?
Are they disturbing others?
