Thank you all for your comments and advice. The support for reading recovery is awesome and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to do it.
Bakingdiva- I might email you soon. I am getting into my classroom this week and will start hashing out some of those details. Thanks for the advice.
rasgrade1- Reading recovery teachers can only have up to 4 children on their caseload at a time. This equals out to be 2 hours of actual teaching time (30 minutes with each student, each day), so for the rest of the day I have to be teaching something else. Often reading teachers split their day and do RR half the time and Title I or AIS in the other time. By training 2 first grade teachers we can service 8 children in a semester and still teach 1 section of first grade. This way the school only had to hire 1 other person, to cover the first grade section that we lost by combining our classroom, but they are getting 2 reading teachers and a first grade teacher out of us.
I know it will be a lot of work! However, I am looking forward to the knowledge and expertise that comes along with the RR training. They say it makes you an even better classroom teacher, as well.
