Admin. Sometimes they will convene an IEP meeting to make sure we are following all the modifications. Which is bullshit.
1. I'm a certified teacher of the deaf and I do my job. I DO follow mods, even though, technically, for a special education classroom, you do not need the modification page from the IEP because that page is designed for the regular education classroom...
2. Some kids are just LAZY and don't want to do their work...I'm qualified to make that determination.
3. If a child is really struggling due to his/her disability, I would have convened an IEP meeting long before the report card is due.
I've had kids flat out tell me..."you can't give me an "F" in this school" with smirks on their faces.
Well, I did get "permission" to put Fs on their report cards. When the parents called (oh, boy they were mad!) and asked why I gave their kids "Fs" I shot back, I didn't! They EARNED their Fs.
The next grading period, almost all of them started turning in assignments, studying for their tests, and oh my! EARNED their good grades.
That was the reason I got an I on my report card... In my entire high school I havent gotten a F but an I. But the strange thing - 2nd quarter of the semester i got an A and the overall semester grade was an A. So needless to say a lot of teachers knew I was taking full advantage of the system.
