Day 11 – Something People Seem to Compliment You the Most On

At this point, what’s springing to mind is my efficiency/productivity at work.  I’ve been told by previous administrators that I am meticulous with my paperwork.  I was recently complimented on being the first person in my department to submit my notes on IEPs that I’d reviewed.  In special ed, half of what we do is paperwork and legality, the other half is actual teaching.  For those not familiar with the field, we meet (at least) annually on every child on our caseload to construct a legal document detailing their strengths, needs, educational services, accommodations, etc.  The format and the wording of this document has to be done just so, as to maintain legal compliance.  It’s a big deal, and a big part of what we do.  I’m pleased with myself, being so successful at my IEPs.  I just wish they would be done already…  🙂
