A few more questions about a special ed position

I was recently hired as a special ed teacher to finish off the school year for a teacher who had to leave. I'm hoping this will be a great learning experience and I can sign a contract for next school year.

I'm going to attend orientation in the next day or so and I have a ton of questions I need to ask. I'm assuming this orientation will be very 'general' rather than relating to my specific position. Does everyone think I will be able to ask many questions after orientation, or would there be a better time (and group of people) to ask instead?

Also, I have a BS and MA degrees, but they're not in teaching. I was told that I can complete certification while I'm teaching and become certified. Since I'm not certified now, and there currently is no special ed teacher other than myself, am I able to write IEP's on my own? They have been started from the previous teacher, but I will need to keep track of due dates and complete them for the end of the school year.

Any other tips and suggestions anyone can provide? Thanks for the help!
