I work with a variety of students. All unique in their learning styles and personalities. As a case manager, I work directly with students with special needs. Each of my students has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). IEPs contain goals, services, and transition plans for students.
During Study Skills, I check in with each of my students regarding grades, attendance, homework, and goals.
I often implement several mini-lessons that involve crucial information in a more accessible manner (personal finance, conflict management, college and career awareness). I have about 20 students on my caseload. Each student has an annual meeting with the IEP team. We discuss student progress and the implementation of new goals. Students are highly involved in the process and are encouraged to share their experiences that promote the most growth.
I am a Special Ed teacher working with Graduating Seniors. We have about 50 seniors graduating with special needs this year with a good portion continuing their education at community college and even four-year universities!
As a graduating gift, we'd like to give our Seniors a padfolio with a customized "M-A Class 2020" on the outside.
Inside, we'd include all the official and confidential documents that they will need for additional services with school, work, or technical training in the future. As a public school, our special education budget often gets depleted before the end of the year.
