Dear Maggie,
Sounds like you are a patient and effective teacher. As someone who
taught Emotionally Handicaped adolescents for many years before returning
to a art in a "regular" school, I must caution you. It is imperative for
your safety and the safety of your students that you read the iep and the
confidential folders. You need to know if a student has been violent, has
committed arson, has a history of abuse, etc. Also, federal law
requires that all teachers implement the iep. I know that some teachers
feel they don't want to form any prejudicial feelings about a child, but
it is dangerous not to know what a student is bringing to your class.
