Special Ed teacher here.. year 16 .., nothing going on except showing up.


First day of school should just be getting to know the kids and making connection. How you start the year will set their year and course of learning.


I’m having difficulty becoming creative this year.


I’m on week 4 of school so…. Lol


Hey, we've been in school since beginning of August. We went over classroom rules, our school wide matrix. What a good classmate is. Toured the school. Met the people on campus who were safe people. Played some math and English games. Played some science and History activities. It was good, the student in my class were so happy to be back in person.

I'm getting my brother autographed Panthers memorabilia for christmas, but I'm the gay son in the family who knows nothing about football... So we've got someone named D.J. Moore, another named Terrance Marshall Jr., Luke Kuechly, and Robbie Anderson. None of these names are doing anything for me, nor do any of the stats mean anything to me when I look up their names on Google. Do any of these names ring a bell to you, and which ones would be the coolest for a signed helmet/jersey?

How would you respond to a teacher or teachers that tell you they haven’t had time to read over the IPP/IEP(s) that were written in October and revised in March? I wanted to snap but walked away after saying it is your responsibility to and if you aren’t you are failing that child. It comes up a lot here and I’m frustrated.


My principals ALWAYS seem to visit my room as soon as I give my student(s) a break from their work or when they’ve finished early everything I had planned. They RARELY come in when I’m actually in the middle of making progress on a lesson. It makes me feel like I have to be defensive & justify why the students aren’t working. Does this happen to anyone else?


Anyone figured out how to utilize a 1:1 for a student that is 100% remote? I want to make sure my TA feels useful, and not just sitting on the sidelines.


I am working with a self contained student to learn his sight words. We are using Snap Words and I am excited about his progress. But when we go to share his success the other teacher says " He can't do that. He doesn't even know the letter names." Right in front of him. It broke my heart for him. I have data that shows he does know his letters and sounds and can identify 14 of his sight words, but the teacher doesn't believe in him or what I tell her. It makes me feel so discouraged.


Hi! I’m looking into programs for supporting dyslexia students. Any ideas? Something within a smaller budget and is user friendly. Thanks!

We all have our difficult students. I know I am not alone in this one. I have a couple who just do not want to do work. Or if they have a bad morning, the rest of the day is a waste.

What are some ways to motivate the unmotivated. Unfortunately, I am not to a point that he trusts me yet to find out the exact cause. HELP


Countdown... beginning now


How many times does a kid have to hurt people before something happens? I work with a student part time at one school before going back to my original school. He got moved because of his aggressions. He hurt one teacher but she was able to just do PT. He hurt a para to the point of surgery. He also did something to the bus attendant but we don't know what. I'm afraid now that he will hurt the teacher I'm with due to seeing what has happened in the past and how it happened.


Counselors and other Specialist can receive a 5% raise in NV!!! What about SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS???


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!!

Anyone feel like their job is just putting out small fires every day? I don't feel like I have time to actually set up individual plans of action for my students, and our days seem SO chaotic, even though I know my caseload (14) is way less intense than others. Am I just managing everything wrong? How can I get my feet under me? 2nd year teacher.


What challenging fun projects should I have my gifted high schoolers do?


Does anyone have a good way of making modified virtual assignments? Ideally a drag and drop type sorting activity would be great. None of the platforms were using have anything like that built in.


Does anyone have any advice on how to write standards based IEP goals when the student is significantly behind grade level skills?

My husband just now got back his son. His son is 13 going on 5. Literally he still watches little kid movies and tv. He is very slow of the maturity level. I’m going to homeschool him until next school year. He made all F on his grade card last semester from his West Virginia. He just quit working and arguing with the teaches. His abs my husband mon has a very disturbing relationship. He has never got to have friends come to his house or hin to anybody. Never watched a scary movie. Now this one


Any idea on good resources for puzzles (regular, crossword, wordsearch) for Autism. I have a kinder who is incredible at them but ones I find are too difficult and irrelevant.


In your school district, who is responsible for writing IEP goals for a student who is graduating from 8th to 9th- the middle school teacher or the high school teacher? I ask bc I wrote some IEP behavior goals for a student who's going to hs next year and the high school responded with, "we don't do that here". OK, so are you going to write them?
