Re: 8th grade student never in band
Percussion- Only plays on a rubber practice pad.
Flute- Pop a spring out or take some screws out to not allow it to make a sound.
Brass- Twist a valve.
An 8th grade student was placed in band by the special
Education teacher. She has never been in band before but her parents wanted her there.
I was told that by law I had to have her there and I was
to remediate her.
She will not listen and playes the same note over and over.
I already have 5 other special needs students that were placed in this group. These I had last year and enjoy working with them.
I only have 45 minutes for this class and also part time.
I was told by the principal that he let kids in athletics all the time without any prerequisites.
The sped teacher is even intervening when I have any discipline problems.
I am very frustrated. The sped teacher has called a meeting for the administrators and myself.
Do these teachers have the power to question me, place students in and out of my class and act like administrators.
She just has a sped certification👹
