I am a special educator in a high school self-contained, center-based program. I have 17 students with varying disabilities and a wide spectrum of learners. Right now, I only have two paras but am about to get two more. I have asked my paras to document behaviors when they are in electives by using behavior tracking forms and old fashioned pencil and paper. I have one para who is consistently forgetting to document target behaviors which are pretty serious (leaving the classroom and/or building). Also, he constantly leaves his binder I provided him with the forms and information about how to track behavior all over common areas and general ed classes in the school. I have given him probably 20 verbal reminders along with around 10 written reminders. It is also such a big issue that we have had a meeting with admin about it. It is his 8th week and every time I remind him and tell him how important it is, he becomes combative and tells me I am being negative even though I have not been negative at all. I simply state the facts and my concerns. He actually told me today that he is the one who "works with the kids all day and my job ain't all that bad". He keeps crossing professional lines and seems to think that he does not have to follow my instruction at all. When I told him this is one thing that cannot be really changed or altered, he said that he thinks anything can be changed. How do I get him to realize how important this stuff is? I've told him the seriousness of sped law and even printed multiple resources for him to use. This seems to be going nowhere. Help!
