How to approach this teacher?

Iím in a pickle. I am a resource teacher and Iíve got 5 students in a classroom. Right now, their IEPs dictate mostly push in. I adore this teacher, but every time I am in there it is extremely chaotic, there is a lot of down time, my normally well behaved students are rolling on the floor, and her instruction often doesnít make sense. Itís hard for my kids. The poor woman has been through many traumatic events this past year, so I think sheís pretty distracted. No judgment. I am allowed to pull the kids but I would have to amend all of their IEPs. This teacher also does NOT like pull out. I just feel that they would get more of what they need if they had some time to work in a small group with me. Suggestions?

It would be worth amending the IEPs so the kids can have instruction in a quieter, less chaotic environment. It doesn't really matter if the teacher likes pull out or not. You are servicing the students and are the professional who gets to decide the best academic setting. You can certainly talk with her about it first but, ultimately, you can decide what is the most appropriate plan of action. Good luck.

I would amend the IEP for your students. They can't be learning in the classroom if its chaotic. Too bad the teacher doesn't like pull outs.

Your job is to service those children, not appease the teacher, nice as she is. Pull the students.

Take them to small group. Amend the ieps.

The needs of the students come first.

Just say, "i will be taking these students to my room for 20 minutes at this time and on these days..." no other comment is required.

If she complains. Just smile. Listen fully, then repeat the same statement
