I have been a SPED IA for 4 years and I will be intern eligible to be a SPED teacher this coming school year. I have hit a bit of a roadblock though. The teacher I work with is gone on leave for a few months and did not leave any lesson plans. No sub has taken this class, so it is just angry teachers coming off their prep bringing many papers to grade (not that I blame them for being angry). Because of this the majority of classroom management and lesson planning has fell on to me. Although I feel capable of doing it, not sure I should since this is not my job description. Here is where it gets tricky: I just got offered this classroom for next school year. Because of this I feel like I'm being watched as to how I handle the students. District office has stopped by to make sure I am doing okay, knows I am the one modeling lesson plans after the teacher,s old outline and has told me to keep going. Principal is indifferent as to what is happening as long as classroom is not wild. What do I do?! I know that they want to see how I will handle myself as a teacher, but am I getting myself into a sticky situation by doing this? I know this is an imperfect situation where no one is really doing the right thing. So what do I do? Help!!
