"Hi! I am a fourth grade teacher. I agree with MaryRose about the co-teaching. We tried this in my classroom during the past school year with the special education teacher co-teaching with me. It was a great thought on paper, but didn't work out…"

That's weird to think about right now, when all I do is see them.It has me wondering; did I serve them as best I could? Did I impart all the wisdom I could into their little brains?
