  • Under the Guise of Inclusion

    the educator's room-2

    I remember the days in the 1960’s and 70’s when Special Education was not even a word, and anyone that had disabilities was rarely seen or heard. I’m so thankful today that we have so many programs that help students with disabilities, but as state budgets get tighter, the push for more special support staff reduction is becoming the norm. The result seems to be larger class sizes, less Para support and an unreasonable higher rate of Inclusion than ever before.  Seasoned teachers are reporting that this trend has been steadily climbing for years and has

  • Why I Fled Special Ed (and How to Fix It)

    the educator's room-4

    At the end of last year, I had had enough of my job. After eight years as an expert Special Education teacher, I felt that I could no longer do my job and stay sane. I wanted out! I knew from previous experiences that, despite my certifications and work history, I would not easily get a position outside of Special Education within the walls of any building in that same school district. The need for people like me to work as Special Education Teachers versus the need for Language Arts or Math teachers is disproportionately high

  • 6 Ways to Rekindle Your Love for Teaching

    If you’re a teacher you know that the saying that “those that can’t do teach” is a complete falsehood. Teaching entails more than just providing instruction, especially if you’re a special education teacher. The pressure to make better test scores while creating content that appeals to multiple intelligences while providing 21st century skills and writing Individual Education Plans (IEPs) can get exhausting. This is especially true if you attempt to get all of this done with no real planning time, because you end up staying up far too late trying to make everything work, from lesson plans

  • Inclusion Students – The Elephant in the Room

    on May 27, 15 • in Current Events in Education, Featured, High School, High School, Instruction&Curriculum, Instructional Strategies, Middle School, Special Education • with Comments


    There has been great controversy for many years over the inclusion of special education students in the regular education classroom. Some parents are afraid that inclusion students will negatively impact their child’s education. Mainstream education teachers sometimes voice concerns over whether or not they can teach these students when they have no background in special education. Special education teachers often are concerned that “their” students will be lost in a regular classroom. What I believe everyone should be thinking about is how we best educate all students. As I discuss the good and bad experiences that

    on Apr 9, 15 • in Ask a Teacher, Educator Professionalism, Middle School, Special Education • with Comments

    hello from(2)

    When you decided to become a teacher, you did it to change the lives of children. You never imagined that attached to those children, you might find parents with endless questions, some of which go well beyond the scope of your classroom, or that some parents might get more difficult than planning lessons. Unfortunately, we all come in contact with an angry parent sometimes, and it takes some skill and tactical reasoning to navigate those choppy waters. Dealing with an upset parent can take up some time and can take an emotional toll, but if
