RANT: So angry about work...

I am so angry right now I cannot stand it.  i am literally sitting in my classroom at school with the door closed crying my eyes out.As I feared at the beginning of the year, I've just been informed I am losing my classroom, will not have a room at all, am not getting an instructional assistant, and will be spending the remainder of the year in classrooms as a glorified aide.  I am so upset.  I have my entire classroom set up, have been running reading and math groups, and have really been making progress with my special education students and at risk students.  Because of this 40 students will no longer get servicese from me. I am just so mad that they don't think higher of me to give me a space to work with students who need it.Sorry about the rant-I am just MAD.

    I am so sorry to hear that, Heather.  :(  That is ridiculous that you won't have your own space to work with your kids.  Can you fight it at all?  Call some of your more supportive parents and explain the situation...maybe they can complain?

    That is so awful! I'm very sorry, and you have every right to be MAD. It seems a bad move to change things on these students who probably need structure/routine in their lives. I think the asking parents to complain is a great idea. You could tell them the situation and say how you are upset by this and would encourage their support to try to keep a classroom. Is the reason because of budget cuts to the school district? What would happen next year? Could you get it back? Is this temporary?

    I'm so sorry :(  KRM's suggestion is great- can the parents of your special education students raise a fuss?  Are these services required by law for students with special needs?  (I have no knowledge of this at all, just throwing ideas out there.)

    Thanks guys, it really helps knowing you all are rooting for me!  KR-great idea, I think I will contact a few of my parents because they will be irate if their children do not get the services they require.  I spoke with my mother about it as well and she thinks I should fight it because it's  a regular ed class taking over a special ed class.  So I'll try both ideas...thanks ladies!
