Hi Everyone -- I have a question that might raise some hackles or eyebrows, dependent upon the answers that are given. How do regular education teachers actually view special education teachers???? I would really like honest responses and am not interested in politically correct stuff. Are the relationships negative/adversarial or are they collegial/collaborative? I have experiences of both (I have been told that I don't teach and just pass through the dumb ones, and lower standards for all students to others where we collaborate on ways to help teach students in manners different that the teacher never had tried before and had significant successes with students. Tell me your stories...good and bad!
