Hi all, This is my first time posting to the group...it is also going to be my first year teaching. I am going to be in an elementary life skills classroom with 6 children. I am not aware of all of the range of disabilities yet. I do know I have one student in a wheelchair and one autistic student. I guess I should consider myself lucky because I have a lot of curriculum stuff and the daily schedule left by the teacher. I think what I really need is advice on setting up the room and just getting to know the students and the parents. I think both parents and students are going to of course have difficulty adjusting to a new teacher, but I also think the parents are going to be concerned about a new teacher educating their kids. Is anyone else here a first year life skills teacher? A first year teacher? I think I just need someone to talk to :)
