12:35-1:50= did a good job and was able to play games with the other students.
This is just ONE day.
Is this a SPED class or is he just a SPED child? What does BIS mean? I worked with some SPED kids who were great, with only one who was non-compliant, but he was quiet. The other children really shouldn’t have to be subjected to all that, nor the teachers, either.
@solovoice our room is a self contained cross category classroom meaning we can get any of the SPED categories PLUS,ed, autism or just learning disabilities. BIS is a behavior intervention specialist but their main goal is try to keep the student in the room which for most of our kids is the opposite. They need to get out of the room for a bit and it’s hard for me to be able to take one student for a walk because for one then another student will start having behaviors so they can go for a walk or just having behaviors in general so it’s a cycle. Also me and the teacher don’t like to give walks as a option for a break because then the kids start abusing the priviledge and use it to get out of doing work. Our whole class they have moments where they are having a meltdown. Its like you put out one fire and then there’s another.
@torturedsoul_1 I feel for you. I student taught in a middle school when I was considering getting an MAT. I loved the kids, but I saw that I was too old (I was retirement age) to handle the bureaucracy.
