I wish I didnt leave behind every single resource I acquired, accumulated, or made over the years when I moved from my state. I took for granted that every school provided a wealth of material and had a library blooming with books. The school that I am at wants to offer teachers freedom, and probably save a lot of money, but I struggle so much to learn the state standards and pacing, as well as learning how to effectively teach special ed and do IEPS... I am just in need of ideas for cost effective ways to properly serve my students. I only need help with reading ideas for third grade. To teach reading I need things for them to read! I feel like a first year teacher right now.
