aides

I have had aides a number of times in my classroom. It has worked out pretty much like all the other posters have said. I always have a place for the aide to sit by the child they are assigned. Depending on the situation, I place the child first. Sometimes that means they sit at the table with the other children, sometimes they have a desk apart. It's funny, the other children always accept the aide as part of the class, and will tell others things like, "you can't sit there, that's Mrs. Donna's seat" like she's one of them. Our aides are wonderful (right now), but I have had the occasional "contrary" one. Since our aides are for special ed. kids, the special ed. teacher is who the aides "answer to". So if I have a problem, I talk to the sped. teacher first to try and work it out.

I know it can be intimidating to have other adults in your classroom, at first. But we are so used to it in my school, that I would feel odd if someone wasn't coming in and out all day.
