Hello. I thought I would be fine without a teacher aide for the three weeks she is on vacation. There are limited substitute aides. Last week, I had some difficulty with supporting all of my students who need 1:1 assistance (I have 5-6 one-on-one students who need 1:1 help for varying degrees). I have taught a lesson in my special education class before. However, I have 3 different lessons and grades to teach and student needs to juggle. Would look some advice relating to how I could work closely with all of my students and still teach all the lessons. While I have been teaching for a long time, in the 10 years that I have been teaching my special class......I have never encountered this challenge. To be honest, I am a little overwhelmed by this situation. Is this even a normal feeling to have?
