This hurt my feelings

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Maybe I'm being too sensitive, but:

I've been a para for 17 years. I have hundreds of hours of prof. dev. and feel like I'm well trained on every program I teach. Also, I spend hours researching and developing materials that my K-6 students need.

Yesterday, a teacher that comes in two days a week for speech asked how things were going in Title 1. I was very excited to tell her that we had switched things around school wide and that in one grade I had the higher kids and was able to do a novel study with them.

Her comment was this: "Well that's how it should be. I've never understood why schools put the least qualified staff with the lowest functioning students. "

I can see her point if we were not as well trained as we are. Was she insensitive or am I making too much of her comment?
