- my Grandma, who taught in public school for 40 yrs. (general & special education)
- my Aunt Linda, who is a public school special education administrator/teacher for 25+ yrs.
- my sister, who has taught K & 1st in public school for 13 yrs.
I volunteered in my sis' room this Wed. & Th. - it was fun to see the progress of her kiddos & just to see how other schools/teams do things...it is "technically" working, but as teachers it's hard to say NO. I mean it's gonna be Easter, my sis just finished conferences, & who wouldn't give a day or two to help out & get someone caught up.
Plus she has a student who arrived in mid-February, who hadn't attended school...I was able to pull him into a few 1-on-1 sessions & it was great to give him some special attention, since he lives in a group home.
It was also fun to help the class with their Community Helpers/Neighborhood Unit too - this little paper brought tears (of laughter) to my sister's and my eyes:
