As a special ed teacher, I would definitely send a letter of introduction home. I might not give the same advice to a new high school social studies teacher, but as special ed, you will probably be doing IEP meetings and parents are likely to want to contact you whenever they have academic or behavioral concerns about their child.

My only other tip is: don't make too many waves! Kids are used to how your predecessor did things, so try not to change their world too much right now. If you continue there next year and want to make bigger changes, that would be a better time to do it. If you see things now that you are sure you need to change, talk with kids about your ideas and mention that you intend to do those things differently next year. Watch their reactions, because some of them might be comfortable for kids if you implement them this year.
