IEP Institute at Teachers College

Below are some of the quotes that stood out for me during the conference. We came back with some great insight into students with IEPs and difficult behaviors. We will share information with you after the holidays.

"Very rare is a child who asks for something they don't need." C. Cruz

"They are only special ed in school." C. Cruz

"Use the progressions to set your IEP goals." C. Cruz

"Don't quit, take a break" C. Cruz

"Reading is a habit, not homework." C. Cruz

"Behavior is communication." C. Cruz

"Our work is not to fix kids." C. Minor

"Instead of being surprised by that reality just accept it." C. Minor

  • His wife's response to him after coming home every night depressed about his student's behavior. She was suggesting to him to accept that the students response will be the same as long as his actions remain the same as the teacher.

"The child that is shunned by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth." West African

"That student is not mad at me, he is mad at the system I represent." C. Minor

"The things that scare me are the things we accept as normal." C. Minor

Restructuring Team - Agenda from November 30, 2018

Below is our agenda from the November meeting. One thing I am hearing is that people are not being informed about the meeting outcomes. Communication is always a work and progress. My apologies for not making it clearer. We will be working on a plan for better two way communication with the staff and RT. One idea is to use part of the meeting to develop bullet points to then share with staff. We are working on some better communication options. Stay tuned!
