Welcome to my Classroom.
Hi, welcome to Mr. Montes Resource Classroom, I believe that the best way to remember what you learn is when you have a good learning experience. Human beings tend to forget things when are learned in a stressful and boring way. So my belief is that we need to teach our students to enjoy learning.
Parents Involvement.
Parents play an important role in the education of their children, especially parents of children
who are identified as having disabilities. The law requires that parents and school personnel work
together to provide children with appropriate educational services. You, as a parent of a child with
a disability, should ask questions and request help when you feel that you need it.
Communication is important
Contact the teacher as soon as you suspect that your child has problem with his schoolwork. Schools have a responsibility to keep you informed about your child's performance and behavior and you have a right to be upset if you don't find out until report-card time that your child is having difficulties. On the other hand, you may figure out that a problem exists before the teacher does. By alerting the teacher, you can work together to solve a problem in its early stages.

Request a meeting with the teacher to discuss problems. Tell her briefly why you want to meet. You might say, "Tim is having trouble with his social studies homework. I'm worried about why he can't finish the assignments and what we might do to help him." If English is your second language, you may need to make special arrangements, such as including in the meeting someone who is bilingual.
