Clip to ScrapBook #4

I used to have a large (like full classroom sized) room and my para had a desk and space of her own there. This year we not only moved buildings, but also changed the role of paras to almost 100% pushing in to classrooms. My current para is only with me for 20 minutes per day. I'm also now in a much smaller classroom that doesn't really have any extra space. I didn't build in a space for paras when I moved into this room. They're both new, so thankfully I didn't have to deal with anyone "losing" their space. The previous para I had would have thrown a fit. All paras in the building do have a locker where they can store personal items like purses and coats.

The para I used to have liked to be able to sit at her own desk during her lunch and breaks. I get it, but if the space is needed for students I don't know that we can justify that. Unless the para is required to do work that would involve sitting at a desk/storing materials, etc. then I don't think they need to have a desk.
