Do you start resource services right away, or just hang out in the gen ed rooms? When I taught sped before I always felt awkward during this time. I wasn't supposed to pull kids right away and with it being right at the beginning of the year there wasn't really anything for me to do in the gen ed rooms either. I spent some time with my team planning IEP dates and things like that, but I know it didn't rub the gen ed staff the right way that we had all of that extra planning time. My first year my P didn't let me start services for 2 weeks! She'd said I could observe my students in gen ed, but seriously, that does not take 2 weeks! The second year I told her I needed to meet their IEP hours and got her to let me start on day 4, but I was still a little lost on those first couple of days. When I'd ask gen ed teachers if they wanted me to help them with something, they always said no...I think they wanted those first couple of days to just get their own classes set up without having to worry about an extra person, and since I wasn't doing inclusion services (and won't be in this position either) it's not like they needed to get the kids used to me being in the room.
