I taught special education classes at all levels in the public school for more than 30 years. Now I teach at the university level to preservice teachers and teachers getting their master's degree in special education.
I believe in teaching students at the level they are at currently. A classroom may have students at all different levels so many assignments may need to be individualized in order to help students be successful.
