Right now I have my own classroom. It's small, but it is entirely mine (no dividers splitting one room into two, etc.). I'm in an all pull-out program so since I'm actually teaching all day I feel I really need my own room. One of my friends shares hers at another school, but she is full-inclusion so she doesn't actually do any teaching in the room- it's more just an office. We're combining programs next year and there will be two sped teachers- and I overheard my principal saying that we "don't really need two sped rooms, although we do have the space." I can see from a principal standpoint, they don't want an entire classroom for 5-6 kids to use at once (in our current school set up, there just happens to be a half-size room that I use). But I think it's going to be really hard for my kids to focus when there is another lesson going on in the same room. I was sort of in that situation for my student teaching (there was a divider seperating the room, but you could hear every word from the other side). Many of my kids had attention problems too and that was the last thing they needed. However, before I got to this school I'd never seen a sped teacher with her own room... If you share a room, how do you make it work with two lessons going on at once? I'm considering bringing this up to my principal (not saying I overheard the conversation- just asking what the situation with 2 teachers would be like), but I thought I'd get some opinions first on what the real problems with sharing a room are, or any pros if there are any.
