I don’t get to send a list. I have to buy all of it myself. My district doesn’t even supply me with computer paper for my 40 IEPs a year I have to write 😩

We can. I usually just ask for a couple of very specific things I need and parents buy from the mainstream grade level list. I try my best to just make it work.

I send out a list to my students but have back up supplies for my students who can’t afford them. I am at a title 1 school. I ask for the basics we also as a school are adopted by the church next door who does a big school supply drive for us every year.

I don’t but my district provides basic supplies and we have a nice budget for specific supplies like fidgets and books. With that said I still buy things like folders and notebooks because they’re cheaper in stores my district won’t order from.

I work with a classroom of Middle School ED students. One student, who I worked with the year before, has changed alot over the year. Last year (pre COVID), she had a good head on her shoulders and I thought I had good rapor with her. But over that period of isolation, she tried to commit suicide.

All year, she was much more withdrawn and ALWAYS on her phone! At the end of the I was 'beat up by her - she really knocked my glasses off.

How should I approach her in the upcoming year?
