    My job this year looks quite different than it has before; my school has moved to strictly an inclusion model.

    I am a part time resource room teacher (.6 FTE). I have 13 students, grades 2-5. I work with kids with dyslexia, ADHD, Movement disorder, mild autism, anxiety disorders, depression, seizure disorders, borderline IQ's, health impairment (muscle disorder), dysgraphia, and dyspraxia. I do pull-outs and support in the lunch room and on the playground. My schedule does not allow for in-class work, as my kids are in 8 different classrooms and I am only part time. I barely get to consult with all of the teachers.

    My kids are all so different from each other, and I feel like I have to be an expert in everything. It can be overwhelming. But great kids!

    I have Down Syndrome, SLD,Language Impaired, Autistic, Physical Impaired with other health impairment, Mild Mental Disability


    This year my school has moved to a team on each grade level that consists of 2 gen ed teachers, 1 special ed teacher and 1 para professional. It is a great model. I have done inclusion in other schools but this is by far one of the best set-ups.
