Hello everyone, I am a first year special ed teacher and I received feedback from my admin. that I need to work on how I run my IEP meetings. I make an agenda, but don't always stick to it. I feel like parents need the meetings to talk about their kids and use it as a time to vent about their frustrations. I like the meetings to kind of take their own flow. My meetings always have a good outcome and my students and parents all like me and the work I do with their students (high school). Do you have any specific suggestions for how to best lead IEP meetings? Also, I am only 24, working with people who are twice my age, with parents who are also twice my age, even older. I know that's not a huge deal, but it definitely makes a difference in how I'm able to "take charge" in a meeting.
