There is only one teacher in my building that I don't particularly get along with. She's extremely "old school" and doesn't fit well into my building overall. She's a K teacher. The SLP, OT and I all had a couple of students in her class last year and she was difficult to work with because she doesn't like having sped students in her class (yes, she said this) and doesn't want to work with them at all. I was very relieved to see that I had no students in her class this year. So that's the backstory. We got a new K student before break that was placed into her class. The student is really high-needs. They thought she was actually meant to be in a cognitive needs (what my state calls mod-severe) program, but she never comes to school and they weren't able to properly evaluate her. She came to 20 days of Pre-K overall. She's been to our school once since enrolling in late November. K isn't requried in my state, so she's not technically truant. She has an hour of push-in (meaning I go into the classroom) time from me each week. I have to put it into my regular schedule, even knowing that she doesn't come much, because when she does come I'm legally obligated to meet those hours. I don't have any "extra time" that I can just go in there if she happens to show up rather than putting it in the schedule. I have mentioned before that I have about half the planning time of gen ed teachers in my building. I have this student scheduled for 30 minutes on Tuesday and 30 minutes on Friday. If the student isn't there, which is most of the time, I haven't been going into the classroom and use that as planning time. There are no other special ed students in this classroom. There is an RtI student who is fairly low, but she hasn't qualified for tier 3 yet. The teacher wants me to come in and "help" during these scheduled times anyway, even if the student isn't there. On the one hand, I can sort of see where she's coming from- I did tell her I would be in the classroom during those times and to her it seems unfair that I get all of that "extra" planning time just because the student doesn't show up. However, given that I already have so much less planning time than anyone else, I don't think it's unfair for me to use this time for planning if my student isn't there. Gen ed teachers have a 40 minute planning period 7 times a week, along with a 40 minute lunch every day. If I don't use this student's time, I have a 40 minute planning period three times a week, and a 25 minute lunch 3x a week. On Mondays I have 15 minutes for both lunch and planning combined, and on Fridays I have neither. This teacher has my full schedule, since I just give out the full schedule to every teacher rather than taking the time to tell them all individually when their specific times are, so she should be aware that I don't have any extra time. Am I out of line here?
