Congratulations on the new job. The first thing you need to do is find out more about the students you will be teaching. Are the students with mild, moderate, or severe delays? Or will you have a range of ability levels? Will your students address the regular standards and take the regular state assessments, or will they address some type of modified or extended standards and take an alternate assessment? Are you expected to focus primarily on a modified version of the regular curriculum, on functional academics, or on basic life skills? You donít need to have access to the IEPís to find out this information. Do you have a mentor teacher at your new school? That person may be able to help you. If not, then your principal or someone from the special-education office should be able to give you a better idea of what type of students you will be serving. Once you know that, youíll be able to start making some plans.
