Last year due to budget cuts, I was given my first co-taught high school english class (regular students mixed with ESE). I am teaching another this year. I have always allowed my kids to come before school and at lunch to make up assignments and get help. While my regular students take advantage of this opportunity regularly, many of my ESE students do not. Then, when I do help them with assignments most refuse to think for themselves and want me to do the work for them. I have made parent contact and truly am an optomist, but I feel like these students are tyimng my hands behind my back. Am I helping too much?
