Back to School Ready Checklist: A To Do List for Special Education Teachers (with Freebie)
Updated: Mar 12
The countdown is happening, school is almost back in session (no matter how many times we wish for 1 more week or month). Are you back to school ready?
If you are like me, you’re probably pushing off even talking about the S word (school) until a specific date- mine is August 1st. No matter if you are raring to go, prefer to slowly get back into the school groove, or just finished your degree and accepted your first teaching position, you’ll need to know what to do before your students come rushing through your doors on day one.
Each summer I reference my list of back to school ready checklist and start tackling them one by one. Some are quick things I can take care of from the comfort of my own home, others require some thought and research, and the last few need me to be present in the building or consult fellow staff to fully check off.
This list was designed with special education teacher needs in mind, but it can be a starting point for resource or general education teachers.
Good news, I’m sharing my to-do list with you for FREE! Don’t worry, I’ve added extra lines to the end so you can write in to-do’s that are unique to you and your position.
