I'm a 1st year resource teacher of 7th and 8th grade Math. I'd like to know how involved other special ed. teachers are with students they case manage. My school has the expecation the case manager is solely accountable for students that are failing. These students are fully capable of grade level work but refuse to turn in their work. They're failing out of laziness. I've gotten their parent involved, mandated tutoring, HW club afterschool, told them to check in with me, fill out their agenda books, and some of them just won't do it. I teach my classes all day. The ones failing I don't have so it's hard to catch them to give them "the talk." Lately my administration has been griping at me that I am not doing enough to case manage. They said I should be chasing down my kids in the morning and afternoon (in a physical sense) to walk them to to tutoring or to their classes to fill in their agenda books. Problem is, I tutor in the mornings and afternoons and don't know how I can be walking 3-5 kids around the school to various rooms and then be in my room tutoring. They won't tell me how it's done, just to get it done. I was told yesterday the person before me was able to do it. I know he didn't spend much time on his teaching, that's how he did it. I guess they wanted me to be more of case manager-pulling kids in my room all day, chasing and escorting everywhere instead of working so hard to teach my kids on-grade level Math. Is there anyone else who does this type of casemanaging with their kids and teaches?? Please give me your ideas, I'm going to try to finish out the year hoping to please them more. Thanks.
