I have definately enjoyed being a co-teacher in an inclusion classroom for three years! I LOVE seeing my students achieve their goals, while in the regular classroom setting.
Co-teaching has so many perks, however I felt the stress of not being in my classroom and not having everything I needed at my reach. There are also times where I am responsible for students on another special education teacher's caseload, which causes a bit of stress because I do not know those students quite as well as my own.
This past year I have created a binder that has saved me from running from the inclusion classroom to my classroom about 5 times a day, as well as pestering other special education teachers about students on their caseload. I must also ad that this has played a tremendous part in collaborating with the regular classroom teachers I was working with. Substitutes that came in for me LOVED having this to use. Co-teaching schedules can be a bit crazy. They loved knowing where I was going. With my detailed inclusion plans, they also loved knowing what I was teaching for each subject!

You will be receiving this binder as a PowerPoint and as a PDF.
The PowerPoint version allows you to "edit" the slides I've called "editable" by adding your own text boxes. Whereas the PDF version prints in a better quality, allowing you to only hand write on the pages you choose to use.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask!
