Hi, I've been teaching math for 15 years. This school year, I will have a co-teacher for the first time (in 2 of my 8th grade math classes.) This is all new to me, so I would like some input from anyone who has been successful with co-teaching in math. My concerns: 1. No training has been provided for the regular ed teachers in the district. 2. I'm concerned the regular ed students' progress be slowed down as we make sure the special ed students (many of who can't multiply) are caught up on a daily basis. 3. The special ed teacher has expressed a desire to teach the whole class, but has no experience teaching math. 4. We're only free together 1 period a day...but that's when we also need to prep for our other classes! I just don't know where to start, and am feeling very overwhelmed! Thanks for any help/ideas you can share! I've worked so hard these years so be successful at my job, and want this to go well.
