'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world.
Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.' — Margaret Mead

Welcome to Paddy Eger's educational website


Teachers, para educators, community assistants/volunteers, parents, and people interested in schools and classrooms, this portion of my website is for you.

 As a former teacher and now as a volunteer trainer and a classroom volunteer, I realize the value extra hands bring to our schools.

By stepping up and stepping in, we help teachers with small groups or 1:1 student support in a variety of subject areas, set up field trips, organize afterschool programs, do clerical tasks and share our expertise. We work before, during, and after school helping with elementary school safety, tutoring middle and high schoool students, as well as assisting coaches and fine arts instructors in support of their education plans.

Look around the site. You will find a variety of free downloadables and resources.

** Educating America: 101 Strategies for Adult Assistants in K-8 Classrooms

** Educating America Desktop Flipbook

and the newest tools

Together these materials will guide you as you build your volunteer system or as you become a volunteer.

Teachers are experts at creating strong, independent, capable students. With our help, they can reach more students each day as we work together to build a world class education system!
