I'm a paraprofessional in an ESE pre-k/kindergarten class. We also have two first graders in the class. We have 13 students (5 kinder, 2 1st, and 6 pre-k) and are expecting to get 2 more pre-k students in the coming week. Pre-K is half day and kinder is all day. The teacher and I are overwhelmed, to say the least. We have two separate classrooms, extensive behavioral problems, and little support/direction from administration. I do not believe there is any way we can meet the IEP goals of all these students due to 1) there being too many to begin with and 2) the extensive behavioral issues we are dealing with. (I have a child with an IEP, so I know the ins and outs of the IEP and how important it is to follow it). I've thought about becoming certified to teach ESE but this has opened up my eyes! Is administration taking advantage of this teacher by putting so many ESE students in one classroom? Is this even legal?
