Long-term SPED assignment tips

Hi everyone,

I've decided to start subbing after taking a break from teaching since this post. I'm starting a long-term assignment after Thanksgiving break that will last a few months.

The assignment is 7th and 8th grade SPED math. I haven't done SPED before. The teacher told me that she sends misbehaving students to the office and rewards students with candy. I did that in the past when I was a full-time teacher, and it didn't work for me. It only made the misbehaving students resentful of me.

How much of a disciplinarian do I be as a substitute and as a special ed teacher? I really want to get to know the students. I also love this opportunity to teach math, which is what I studied and haven't had the chance to teach in my own classroom before. This can be a good opportunity for me.
