We have 6 second grade teachers and I'm always the one that gets dumped on with the "problem" students! I'm the team leader so I can get on to our attendence system to see everyones classlists. Well I have the most students for one, but I also have 6 alerts which means I have 6 kids that get special ed. services. Then I go in to look at my medical records and I have a student with a heart condition (okay), and a student that has fever induced seizures (another okay), those I can deal with. BUT THEN I have a student that has, ADHD, ODD, OCD, and Depression! I e-mail our office head and she said that the principle and vice principle placed him and thought my class would be a good fit. That's great, I take it as a compliment, but did they look at the rest of my kids!!!! GRRRR, she said I can come in tomorrow and either place him else where or look at the rest of my kids!!!! If you go this far thanks, I just needed to vent to people that understand where I'm coming from. Last year I had a student with ADHD and ODD AND a student with mild functioning Autism! I was just hoping for an easier year!
