information about the needs of students BEFORE they come to a first class.
Just having them show up without knowing that they are special needs is
stressful without prior knowledge is stressful for me. I'm going to ask to be
in on meetings about these students. Janet
You are required by law to read each special need students Individual
Education Plan (or whatever it is called in your district) and if you are not
allowed access to that...then contact your union. You ABSOLUTELY must know
the needs of these students. A year ago I found out I was having a blind
student during a random conversation with a kindergarten teacher....I told
her it would have been nice if someone had told me.....I make it a point to
be a SPED pain in the tail. I make it clear that when these students are in
my room they are MY students...and not just an hour they need to get through!
