Co teacher
A first grader uses very inappropriate language and is violent towards teachers. He Screams and disrupts the ENTIRE school. When he has an episode the co teacher is removed from a classroom and the children needing to be served in that room are not receiving the services required by their IEP's because the teacher is removed front their room. This student has only received a 1 to 2 day suspension. What can the co teacher and regular teacher do until decisions are made to help this student?

I have been that co-teacher in a first grade classroom. I recommend that the co-teacher takes every morning to sit with that student for 10 minutes away from other kids. Allow this student to talk about anything! Get to know the student! It will then be important for both teachers to meet with the parents about a class behavior plan. Come up with a system that the student will respond to. For example, my first grader enjoyed drawing and wanted to draw most of the day. So, we came up with a solution/compromise. For every kind phrase he used towards others we gave him a tally mark. For every 10 tally marks he was allowed to draw for 5 Minutes. If he got 20 tally marks he could draw for 10 minutes. Positive reinforcement worked for this student. I hope it works for yours.

This is a great strategy and something that I had not thought of! Turning the negative behavior into a positive is a great idea. Finding what works with your student's can be tricky, but this is a good example of how you can reach out to any child.

Make sure differentiation strategies and plans are in place for the days activities. A beneficial co-teaching pair will plan every step of the teaching together, so both teachers should have a full understanding of the expectations, modifications, and needs of each student (special ed or not). I would suggest talking to administration about the pulling-out-of-class issue as both teachers are needed in your classroom for your students.

I am going to suggest a resource for both the general education teacher and special education teacher. The book is called Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for Teachers. This book gives teachers options on how to collect data for students with IEPs or collecting data for RTI.

The teacher should remove the child from the classroom and allow the co teacher to continue working with the rest of the students.
