Educating America Events

Any School Year

The school year is always in front of teachers. Regardless of the time of the year it’s never too early or too late to think about adding classroom assistants.

 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 on this website and on Amazon Ignite (link).
