There is a student in my class who is a behavior problem. However, I would consider it mild. Last year, it was severe but because I have developed a good rapport with him since the beginning of the year, his behavior has considerably improved. He does have an episode every now and then but it is not every day. Because of an episode he had a couple weeks ago, it has all these people (behavior intervention coaches, entire team of behavior specialists) on my back and they won't stop even though I have said there is NOT a problem. My principal is not supportive and is condescending to myself and other colleagues. I do not get along with the behavior intervention coach. I get along with my other colleagues, but she is very rude. She came in demanding to observe my student. When I said no, she accused me of lying and later returned and stood outside my room. I wrote to the principal indicating what happened and expressing that I don't feel comfortable with anyone except an administrator observing a student in my room. He sided with her saying any staff member is allowed to observe in my classroom at any time. We all know that even when they say they are observing a student, they are also observing you. I don't feel comfortable with it. Especially when I don't get along with this behavior intervention coach and she is really rude. Also, prior to this episode he had, he was doing perfectly fine. Another behavior intervention coach (not the one I don't get along with but another one who is super nice) said last year, that's all you heard is his name over the walkie talkie but not this year. She said "I think he really respects you." The other behavior intervention coach, however, pushed this program called Check In, Check Out. This has been the third time he has started this program but the first time it has actually been documented. This boy has OCD and he has to have routine. Anything out of his routine and he will flip. CICO is out of his routine. So his behavior since starting it has been SO much worse. He was doing fine and now he's a nightmare. I have requested numerous times that he be taken off the program. I have provided documentation that it is not working. They refuse to take him off of it, saying he requested to be on it. He has not met his goal at all since he has been on it or came anywhere close to his goal. I feel like even though I see this student for 6 1/2 hours a day, I'm not trusted and my opinion doesn't matter. They are just clearly going to do what they want anyway. I just feel absolutely helpless in this situation. Advice would be much appreciated. Thank you. ETA: Is it normal for behavior intervention coaches to not leave you alone and be breathing down your neck when you have a student with behavior problems? Or are they just available for help if you ask for it? And I really can’t decline an observation since my principal is demanding that I welcome them into my classroom?
