    congrats, but report back at the end of day one :lol:

    I remember getting hired June 23, 2000 for my first job as a SPED teacher. Grades 6-8 in fact. I remember how excited I was, I bought a truck and a house. The August 28 came. 7am I was on top of the world, 3 pm, I felt like I had just been hit and run and somebody had just shot my dog :0


    Probably a good thing I had a new truck and house that made it where I HAD to come back on day 2

    Pontiac,

    Congratulations on your offer and acceptance. First find out what level of students you will be teaching and supporting. What disabilities will be included in your room as well. I work with middle school severe-profound multiple disabilities and it's a change from autism which I did for 7 1/2 years. I wish you the best of luck in your teaching. Do not take anything personally because it's part of these students limitations and they aren't reacting to you personally. Make sure that you look at what their strengths are as well as their learning styles. This is one of the areas that special education teachers really need to take into considerations, "learning styles". Remember, it's going to be a tough first year and make sure that you are doing what it takes to help your students become as responsible as they are "functionally able". You will want to challenge your students, but some of them are limited in what you can challenge them. This is one of the most rewarding careers, but you need to take time for yourself and don't get too involved or you may get into burn out like I did. Be friendly to the families and make sure that you don't allow your emotions to get in the way of your decisions. I had to learn the hard way too. I have Asperger's Disorder and communication between the parents was very difficult for me. I have gotten better with practice too. Make sure that your room is structured so that they can learn more efficiently as well.

    Aspieteacher
