I'm in the waiting phase right now. All my components are done and now the long wait until December! I don't feel I could give very good advice if I'm not certified at this point. Unless the...

Opposite here

We are nearly all inclusion. With 14 SpEd teachers in our department, only 4 of them don't co-teach. This model works well for our school and we have been doing it for over 10 years. Not to say...

Prep time

Wow, that really stinks! In our district we are given comparable time for any prep time taken up by duties. They give us a minute for every minute. So if I have to cover a class for another...

The SpEd answer

That answer is.....It depends.

What do the student's IEPs say? Where is their instruction to take place? How many minutes? What kind of testing is the SpEd teacher doing?

These are all...

Lots of meetings!

I'm a SpEd teacher as well and in our district, our psychologist does all of the testing. I don't do any data or paperwork on the kids until we are meeting to look at the testing and classroom data...

My best advice is to go to the planning sessions with some hot herbal tea for all of you. Something calming :)

If you start to stress with your colleagues, tell them you need a minute, and take a...

Ugh for you

What a bit of a stressor you have going! I would show them the IEPs and the scheduled time. Tell them you are bound by that time and will make it happen, but need them to trust what you are doing...

Basically, accommodations level the playing field. The student is still working on grade level standards but may have something like "use of word processor" to do journaling. "shortened...

Preferred seating

What kind of teacher are you when you are teaching? Are you a move around the room or stand in one place? I ask because preferred seating near instruction if you are a move around teacher can be...

IEP rules all

You go by what the IEP says. If it says inclusion for 20 minutes then you do that. If it says resource environment, then you provide that.

If it is a behavior issue of a student in a gen ed...

I get it

I get what you are saying, I may not have been clear (I've done that a few times).

I guess just keep asking them for the pacing calendars and lesson plans but continue to pull the kids so you...

Student needs

I guess until the teachers can get you their pacing guides and lessons, you just need to pull the kids when it works for you to meet their IEP minutes.

It is busy at the beginning of the year...

Feeling very lucky here!

I have a 70 minute block every day. My contract time is 7:15-4:00 and I'm in secondary. During that block I'm common planning with my team or going to meetings as needed, but when not doing that I...

Book club

Ok, that clip was hilarious! I loved that dome of the characters were from OITNB!

On another note, our book club has grown to about 25 people and I'm not in charge of the questions anymore. ...

School duty

I can understand your not wanting morning duty.

Let's look on the bright side!

Prep work

I had one a few weeks ago. The prep was the worst part! I hated the taste (my prep was liquid) and the potty and I became close friends for the night.

Good luck to you and I wish you a no...
