As a former teacher aide, I know how important it is to feel appreciated when the pay check doesn't always reflect the amount of time and effort put into this vital position. We have a new classroom schedule for the spring and it's chalked full of exciting things. One of them is a full hour devoted to skill strengthening through small group instruction. My TA's have stepped up and come up with some awesome ideas for this time period. Together, we are working to get everyone ready for their next stage of life! Thank you ladies!!
