Special Education Teacher Wanted
Experience, if not expertise, teaching middle school content to students diagnosed with the following:
ADHD, BD, ED, LD, cognitively impaired, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Oppositional/ Defiant Disorder, severe health impairments, legally blind and/or Autism. Today, one class filled with eighteen of these students awaits your instruction in plant vs. animal cell structure* State and federal officials mandate that you teach exact same curriculum as their typcially developing peers. Your students will need to prove what they learned on standardized tests normed on these peers. If scores are below average, school loses state funding and your name will be listed in the local papers (as well as brought up at every staff meeting).
Absolutely no chance of reassignment/promotion no matter how many other areas of certification you hold. Summers off but no lunch breaks between September and June. Competitive pay; enjoy it while you can-- the state pension board has declared bankruptcy.
Interested parties please contact me before I take my children to daycare. I will hand you my lesson plans and go back to bed.
