In-Class Support

As a Learning Assistance Teacher, I especially valued the opportunities I had to provide in-class support.  Having two adults in the classroom allowed us to get to our at-risk students more quickly as well as provide additional support for borderline students or those who just needed a quick explanation of something.  It gave me a chance to see the entire class dynamics and an enhanced awareness of how my pull-out students were functioning in-class.  This is a win-win situation and I encourage you to collaborate with your support staff  as much as possible to enhance learning for children.  The following article is further evidence of the success of this collaborative approach.
