Here we are with 34 - 36 students in "inclusive classrooms (GT, EBD, LD) with one classroom teacher and how does the district help us?? They hire an LRT to tell us how to manage 8 reading groups!! Do they model it?? nope. The word literacy has become a nightmare in our school. We've always had high reading scores, innovative teachers, and a great staff morale. Now we've got the LRTs in their cute little offices telling us "how" to teach. While we conference with all these parents, they sit in their offices. EVERYONE with a license should be working with kids. The fun is gone, morale is rock bottom, and a once vibrant elementary school is now empty ten minutes after dismissal. Are we alone? Does anyone else have too many talking heads and not enough "doers???"
