I too have welcomed special students in my classroom. These
students, like most other students, are each different from the other.
There has been only one student in this group that I have had problems with
in my 15 years of teaching. This student is encouraged by his mother to
act out as much as possible. She is notorious in town for talking about
getting her crazy check. This year I was the only non-core teacher who
would allow him in my room. He lasted 3 weeks. He would not allow me to
speak to another student without shouting and constantly interrupting,
demanding my attention.
The special ed. teacher and I decided that he would remain in that
class for a couple of days so I could work with my other students. I
called the parent and told her of the plan, she said that was fine with
her. The next morning she was in conference with the principal to get him
out of my room. The only alternative was to keep him in the special ed.
room all day. She didn't like that and went to the superintendent but that
student is in the special ed. room all day. Maybe one day that parent will
change her ideas, until then that student doesn't have much of a chance in
life.
