The Teacher's Role in the Resource Room

Teachers in the resource room have a challenging role as they need to design all instruction to meet the specific needs of the students they serve to maximize their learning potential. The resource room teachers work closely with the child's regular classroom teacher and the parents to ensure the support is indeed helping the student reach their full potential. The teacher follows the ISP and takes part in the ISP review meetings. They also work very closely with other professionals and paraprofessionals to support the specific student. Usually, the resource room teacher works with small groups students, helping one on one when possible, even though there are frequent occasions when the special education teacher follows one or multiple students in their classes and assists them directly there
