A woman at my school who teaches reading asked me why EC Teachers complain so much about paperwork. I told her it was difficult finding the time to write up IEP's when we teach all day, and get LESS planning than them. So, she then says that she can't understand why we say this, because all we do is go on to the computer and print it out!!!! (She wasn't being argumentative, she was actually asking because she was thinking about getting her licensure in EC.) I couldn't believe this is what she thinks! I explained that we have to develop the IEP. She thought it was done for us already, and all we had to do is meet with the parents. She's been teaching for a good 15 years. This got me wondering how many other people think the same thing, or even worse. Have you ever had a conversation like this with someone? Please share.
