Give yourself some time

And, as a coteacher, I would think that you should get access to the lesson plans or anwer keys yourself. Even if she is the main teacher and you just support your SpEd students during her lessons-that is one type of coteaching. (CoTeaching takes many forms and looks different in different classes or schools.)

Also, is English your first language? Or, are you saying that it is but you are not very good at it?

Brush up your skills--it is never too late to learn... There are apps and programs out there to strengthen all subjects.

Just don't give up or get too discouraged.

And one last thing--don't give answers [especially when you are not sure or uncomfortable...] Talk the student through it--reread the instructions together and look at the examples-- (you can also listen to the teacher when she presents info to the class, etc.) Our job is not just about giving them answers but to lead them through the process of finding answers for themselves.

Good luck.
