Beckett Haight, Resource Specialist, is a Californian who has worked in many different schools in California and in many different areas of Special Education as a volunteer, a teacher assistant and a middle and High School teacher. I…I mean he, has worked with students with Aspbergers, Autism, Down’s Syndrome, Specific Learning Disabilities, ADHD and more.
He has spent the last 6 years working in international schools doing resource and self-contained classes. Co-teaching in English, Math, and Sciences in the Dominican Republic all the way to teaching all subjects in Kuwait.
My main professional interests are behavior support, transition, and writing development. I also like pork and riding my bike.
Education is my cup of tea, education is my life.
P.S. Oh yeah. I also was in special education from grades 6-12 with the label of Emotionally Disturbed (ED). They said I had ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder). Other people say that’s how they have sometimes treated minority students they didn’t know how to deal with. I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I was taking medication for ADHD from 1st grade to 11th grade? Either way, I spent part of six grade, seventh grade and eighth grade in a NPS (Non-public special education school), and then in high school, after a year in juvenile hall and rehab I came back to a regular high school and a resource program (RSP). Long story short, I have been affiliated with special education in one way or another since I was 12 years old.
Check out my special education related teacher website that has a ton of lesson plans, behavior support plans and all types of various resources to help the teacher and parent of students with special needs:
