Oh my goodness..... I am not allowed to use any supplementary materials, none, not even my own math manipulatives. Supposedly I am to remediate my SPED kids needs with other lessons from other grades. Which I do not see as possible in all cases....so if a fifth grader needs more work on ratios and fractions, where am I going to find a comparable lesson? Second grade????? Also I still don't know who my students will be on my case load (a general idea), I don't have a schedule, other than two weeks of scripted lessons I am to teach for my hypothetical homeroom that I may or may not have, I will find out next week......I may be teaching a reading class, again scripted, I may be doing push in as well..... Some one kill me......I usually have more planning done at this point, right now I will just settle knowing if I have any IEP's due in September. NO wonder my company can't keep teachers in this school. Did I mention the whole staff is related in some way, knows each other, goes to the same church and I am the only catholic surrounded by fundamentalists? I feel so out of place.......advice on how to deal with the uncertainty.
