LaVerne, I'm so glad you added the last part. I was once put down by a classroom teacher, who pointed out that I only saw her kids for 30 minutes a day, while she had them all day long, every day, so she felt she knew them so much better than I ever could. It made sense because I'd never been in the classroom situation myself. Still, I felt belittled for the input I was trying to give to a student's ability. I'm glad to know from someone who has served in both capacities what the truth is. I feel as though we have to become teacher, counselor and friend to these kids.
