Any School Year
The school year is always in front of teachers. Regardless of the time of the year it’s never too late to think about adding classroom assistants. Look over the Educating America workbook for easy-to-implement ideas to use as you invite in classroom assistants.
I’m always thinking about schools, teachers, students and those who support them. If I can be of any assistance to you, please contact me. I enjoy brainstorming with individual teachers as well as schools. Invite me to speak to your group on ways adults may become effective volunteers. Click here…
Also, watch for new materials, offers for classes and presentations. Let me help you find ways to include community members who are willing and able to step up and step into schools. YOU matter!
