Assessment

Proximity Resource teachers assist classroom teachers with extra modification ideas when children are struggling. If no change is made, the resource teacher will participate with the child study team to discuss options, test for disabilities and assist with necessary paperwork.

Direct Instruction

With a classroom facilitator present, Proximity Resource teachers will teach students, either individually or in small groups in a computer lab. Our most common areas of study are reading, writing and math. Resource teachers will prepare and evaluate lessons according to needs recorded on the IEP.

Indirect Instruction

Proximity Resource teachers work with classroom teachers to provide modifications to the general curriculum. This includes worksheets, homework assignments, testing modifications such as smaller group settings, limiting the number of problems assigned and special seating to avoid distractions.

Administration

Resource teachers maintain paperwork by recording evaluations of goals set on the IEP and dates completed. Each teacher will also collaborate and maintain connection with parents. Each year the IEPs are reviewed and rewritten, and every 3 years, resource teachers initiate re-evaluation of student’s progress.
