Resource Teacher Job Description

Tell me and I'll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I'll understand.

~ Native American Saying



Resource rooms are classrooms (sometimes smaller classrooms) where a special education program can be delivered to a student with a disability. It is for the student who qualifies for either a special class or regular class placement but needs some special instruction in an individualized or small group setting for a portion of the day. Individual needs are supported in resource rooms as defined by the student’s IEP. This type of support can be referred to as “Resource” or “pull out.” The student getting this type of support will receive support in the resource room and instruction in the regular classroom with accommodations and modifications. This type of support helps ensure that the inclusion model remains in place.


Resource rooms are all about meeting the student’s needs. The resource room tends to be less distracting than the regular education classroom setting. Many resource rooms support the social needs of students in a smaller group setting and will provide behavior interventions. Students may be assessed and tested in this setting due to minimal distractions.


Resource support is provided in all elementary and middle schools, and the high school.
