I'm new to Special Education this year. I'm used to doing everything on my own, in my classroom. Now I'm going to have to share my room with 2 aides. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure I will be thankful for them. I just don't know how things will work. :unsure: I've been informed by others that they have been with the school a LONG time and they do things their way; that they will tell me how they want their desks arranged, etc. I don't want to rock any boats here, but how do I set up my classroom right now when I won't see them until school starts? I don't want to offend them, but I also want the classroom to seem like ME. Is this wrong? :help: I realize that I will be in and out of my room more because of inclusion, but I still want to feel like I belong in this classroom. Any tips for me?
