Dedicating time to students Hello everyone, I'm a high school resource teacher and see my students for one period a day (they are in gen ed for the rest of the day). I have two students who are depressed and it seems like they take up all of my time. Today I had to leave my aide alone with my class while I dealt with a crying meltdown outside. When the students are in my class, I have to sit next to them or they get NOTHING done. My other students are beginning to ask why I spend so much time with the other students and "ignore" them. Sadly, my aide is unable to deal with any of these situations. He taught in a high-stress school and had a total nervous breakdown so he avoids any difficult situations like the plague. How do you find a balance and dedicate equal amounts of time to all students?
