The 2018-19 school year is days away and it's time to get excited about school.
Get excited about school? Without a doubt! This is my 17th year as teaching special education and like the students I used to say "the summer went too fast" but in time that phrase has become one of my biggest pet peeves. As wonderful as the summer months are the fall is it's beautiful equal.
Responsibility is an item that students have a serious love-hate relationship with. The idea of homework is something that students initially avoid but once the work is started the young mind finds it's grove and can accomplish anything. A science experiment. A math test. That new item built in tech ed, the history project, and the book that was read in the class of Miss Olson. These are initially avoided responsibilities but the final results will always bring a giant smile to young faces.
And I don't know about you but the proud look on a student's face after work completion is one of the best sites to see anywhere!
It's that time once again. Friends reunite, daily responsibility is resumed, and students spend each day growing with every new experience. It's a change from the casual summer months but growth among friends is something our students secretly enjoy.
So where are the special education students of Mr James learning? Our Resource Room is still located in the far northwest corner of the building which is where your young learners will grow daily, and it's also the location where our annual meetings will be held.
The Resource Room is in the same location but there are many changes that parents should be aware of. Here is a quick run through:
