Advice For the New School Year

I am joining Jamie from Tales of a Carolina Girl.  She is hosting a blog hop for special ed teachers.  She's asking for teachers to give advice.  Even if you're not a special ed teacher, hop over and read the advice.  You just may find a new strategy for the school year.
Head over to read more advice.



  1. My district supports full inclusion. I would love to know what your thoughts are concerning self contained vs. inclusion.

    1. I think there is no "one size fits all" approach to education. Some students are able to handle inclusion and others need so much more than they are able to get in a general education class. On occasion, some of my students are able to handle inclusion for 1 or 2 subjects. But there are days, they just can't handle the pace/social skills/content and have to skip inclusion and stay with me that day.

  2. Hi Karla. Thanks for linking up! I will certainly be asking for lots of help this year. I am hoping not to bug other teachers too much but I know there will be a lot to learn as a new special educator. Even just learning to use the IEP system we have will be a challenge. I'm following you now and look forward to learning more about you!

  8. That's great advice. It's hard to stay positive sometimes... but you have to be able to laugh to get through this job sometimes.

    I've been a long time follower and am glad you posted the bloghop so I could get involved too! It's always nice to meet other special ed teachers!

  10. Hey there! I'm on the SPED blog hop and found you. I also teach 4th-5th grade. We don't have "self contained titled" classrooms in my district but I have most of my kiddos all day besides specials, lunch (well most of them :)) and recess. Some of them are able to go out to their gen. ed rooms for science and social studies. I look forward to following your blog :)
