I work in the district where my kids go to school. I am an aide in Content Mastery, or as we call it, the learning lab. No one here knows my oldest child at my elementary school where I work, because we are new to the district. Only a few "need to know" staff are aware he has an IEP. Anyways, I had an IEP meeting today and had to leave the campus and some other aides asked me where I was going and I know I sounded nervous and said I had to go meet with the jr. high principal but I admitted later I had an IEp and I just felt stupid. For one like she must think I was lying (even though the meeting was including the principal) and then later to admit that yes, I had an IEP. I just get nervous telling people, wonder if they will think less of me, and fill like I am always being "shady" or unclear when really I am just not able to be professional about my own child and his status. Anyone else feel my pain???
