Asking for a friend... Can anyone provide more information about what a Life Skills Self-Contained teaching position would be like for middle school? I know it's special ed, but where does it fall in the spectrum of services? Would these students have more specialized needs than the resource/pull-out kids but be higher functioning than moderate-severe? What would an average day be like for a life skills teacher? My friend is an alt-route candidate who has experience in education and subbing SPED. This person enjoys teaching resource classes, which serve students with dyslexia and other learning differences, but I don't know if they would enjoy teaching students with more severe disabilities. Thank you for any information you can provide.
