Why is it when I go to a new school for the 1st time I typically find an empty classroom. I have been to over 6 schools so far and every time I am forced to search for supplies, websites, books, computers, flashcards, manipulatives, calculators, you name it! It appears that no one is responsible for stocking these rooms. They want us to stock them! Like we have nothing apparently to do. The board of education should have these rooms stocked with all the tools we need as educators. We should have state of the art computers with all the software that a TMH Primary classroom would need. There should be links on the IAA goals to websites where we can find worksheets to meet those IAA goals that they want us to teach. The books should be tailored to the needs of the type of students we have and tied to IAA goals. Instead, we are left with obsolete computers that no one wants, no websites that are tailored to our student's needs, no software, no guided reading books that you find in suburban schools, no flashcards, nothing! They say they are spending a fortune on these kids but the classroom isn't were they are spending the money! They actually think that a stipend of $150 will cover all my cost in the classroom. Are they insane or what? Hence, when kids don't improve who will they blame? You guess right if you said us. Apparently, we need more education in order to teach these kids with the limited supplies we have. I believe they should stock the room before they point the finger at us for student failure. What have you come across in your part of the woods?
