A week before the current school year I was called by the principal of Washington High School in Charles Town, WV to cover a vacancy for a Multi-Categorical Special Education position. The role includes a Self-Contained class of 8 students with IEP classifications and 5 Inclusion classes that I “Co-Teach” with another teacher. The subject for the class is Earth and Space Science. I am a Long-term Substitute teacher, licensed but not Certified.
In 10 short days we will finish the 3rd of 4 9-week teaching periods.
As I write this I am finishing our 5th Period. it is our largest inclusion class and by far the most rambunctious group. Every kid in the class is, in their own way, a pleasure to teach, but when you bring them together it can be quite energetic.
More to come…
