As a special education teacher, I have a different type of schedule than most teachers. I spend some time in my own classroom (the resource room) and some time in other teachers classroom with my children (this is known as collaboration or co-teaching). Another aspect of special education scheduling is that you have to remain flexible, because at any time my schedule could change. This could be for many reasons, a new student, new needs, or changes in IEPs. My schedule is based on academic and social needs of my students and minutes designated in their IEPs for specially designed instruction. Recently, my schedule went through a makeover due to changing student needs.
This is my schedule (as of now). I wanted to give you an idea of "A Day in the Life of a Special Education Teacher." I stay busy and there is a never a dull moment (that is for sure).
I can't wait to share my classroom with you and show you how I organize my life as a teacher. I also cannot wait to start sharing some of my lessons with you!
Stay tuned and follow to get ready the best I have to offer!!
