Does you district make you create short term goals for inclusion students within your IEPs? Do you feel like they are necessary?

Does your district offer prefillable, vague IEP goals for students in the system you create your IEPs in? Do you feel like they properly address your students’ needs even after you make edits?

Who got hit today by a student and where ? As special Ed teachers it goes with the territory. I had one of my ED students sneak up behind me and punch me in the back today. The joy of teaching!

Pt 2: weave goals into curriculum & just write that in the IEPs. We’re required to teach a new curriculum BAD for sped, follow w/ fidelity & keep students’ attention. Please help! I’m about to quit!!
