My grade level and I joke around that my class is the almost-inclusion class because I have 3 that have been retained, and I have 4 others that for various reasons have been through A-team more than once but didn't qualify. I also have the ESL cluster, which totals 6 kids. I have a GREAT group, but they are very low overall. When you crunch the numbers, nearly two-thirds of my class is very, very low. RtI is stressing me out, to the point that I was tossing and turning most of the night feeling like a total failure and scared for my kids. The problem is I don't feel like I have enough time, and I also am scared I have them on the wrong plan. I have some kids on tier I and some on tier II. The tier I kids are supposed to get 30 mins remediation 1x a week and are progress monitored once, and the tier II kids get 30 mins remediation 2x week, and are progress monitored twice. One of the biggest problems is that most of my kids truly qualify in more than one area, but I simply don't have the time in the day to put them on RtI in more than one area! It was a gut-wrenching decision to take some kids off a math or reading plan. I am so sick over this... 4 of my kids were in tier I for both math and reading in 2nd grade, but now that they're in tier II they're only getting services from me in math or reading because I just can't fathom how I'll manage to give 4 kids 30 min 2x a week AND progress monitor them in math AND reading AND remediate the other kids who are on tier I or tier II. Overall, 8 of my 19 kids are on RtI. I worry they'll all bomb the end-of-grade test and be retained because of me. I'm scared someone will say to me "you're doing it wrong." I'm scared parents will come after me wanting to know why their child isn't getting all the services they (truthfully) need.
