This will be my first year teaching a SH class. I am so excited and a little nervous. I checked out the classroom the other day and there is basically nothing in it. Bunches of old handouts for english and math. It is bare in there. I do have windows I will be teaching at the high school level. The students are SH-higher functioning. The classroom looks like a traditional regular ed classroom. Individual desks, white board, etc... So, I have been told to give the VP and the Special Ed Dept a list of wants for the classroom. I have no clue where to begin. I did pick up some basic stuff like pencils, crayons, paper, calendars that I will be using as posters, and markers. I am dirt poor right now, so I do not have a lot of funds available. I will be teaching functional math, english,life skills, and careers. I am not even sure what type of curriculum I will be using. I have been in contact with the Special Ed. department, so I know they will hopefully let me know quickly what type of program I will be teaching. Everyone is on vacation at the moment. Any advice on what I should ask for and what I should keep an eye out for?
