I am a parent of a student at this school, and I don't mean offense here, but you are giving these aides way too much credit. Maybe calling them ketchup openers is a little out of line, but let's be serious. All these aides at this school are not needed, and as a result of not being needed, their positions ARE hurting the county's money.
Four aides for 500 students!!! You think that is too many? You have no clue! Have you ever been there to see what they do on a daily basis? evidently not!! There are Reading Assts. and teacher's assts. so I have heard. My child said the reading assistants do nothing but do tiers and test children. He told me that the women in the "workroom" were so nice, he loves every one of them. I do not think their small salaries are hurting the county's money. All four of their salaries probably will not add up to one of the workers at the central office.

Remember, this is Cornersville Elementary School's forum. If you want to talk about MES, make another topic. As for the principal of Cornersville Elementary, she is a genuine and true person who cares about other's feelings. She treats every child as if he/she was her own, and she seems to really enjoy her profession.

sayso have you named yourself the forum police now? And unless you have seen the genuine and true person in her own element and how she manages her staff, then you have no clue. Go dawgs-there that made this post applicable.

Well, she'll be the first to go if her methods don't work.

Everyone is so against everything the principals, teachers, and aids do these days, I wonder why they don't homeschool their kids. Then those that are complaining now, will have to find something else to fuss about.

LOL-why so sensitive?
If that is in fact their purpose, that's even more absurd. There are students leaving this school going into the seventh grade severely lacking math/reading skills. I know that for a fact. If this is what these aides are supposed to be doing, they need to be replaced by ones that are more competent.
BTW, is childish calling really necessary?
The aides that do the math have college degrees, so maybe it is your child that just doesn't get it!! Has your child always had trouble in math, if so maybe you should get a tutor after school, since you can't help.

If they have college degrees then shouldn't they be able to teach this stuff? Are you saying despite their degree, they lack the skills to help the struggling children learn math? If so , then they are of no use degree or not. A college degree doesn't mean you are capable just "qualified".

some kids just can't be taught because they simply do not want to remember that the standards changed and math was hit really hard with a level of difficulty being raised. a degree does not grant the magical power of being able to help a child learn!

Having a college degree doesn't mean you can teach math. I've known people who were brilliant in math, but oculdn't begin to explain it to someone who doesn't understand.

Most children don't want a tutor they want someone who will do the work for them. It is called, turn off the tv, put down the cell phone, stop texting, unplug the X-Box, put the Wii in storage and get out a book, pencil, and paper.

You are exactly right!!!! The children that haven't learned how to add fractions at the end of 6th grade, probably didn't want to know how to start with!!! Just wonder how much time the parents or whomever has them after school, spend working with them on math poblems. Some parents need to get real and help with homework. I'm sure the teacher would help if you ask.

Well it's like this. No they do not lack the skills. You can teach all day, and some still just won't understand it. Some kids get it and some don't. That's life. Some want to learn, some don't really give a hoot. Those are the ones that need to learn life skills.

I observed at this school (CES) for my college education classes. Was the COLDEST and UNFRIENDLIEST school of ALL schools I have observed (which have been many in Marshall, Maury & Giles) The staff at this school all need to be on Prozac and put a smile on their faces! Is it that bad to be working under Mrs. Reese?

Well with that attitude no wonder they aren't learning. Do you only teach the ones who are easily interested or do you try to motivate the ones who stuggle and don't want to? You want the parents who are probably not as educated or lack skills to teach them at home but then you brag about having a degree. Sounds like you don't care about any but the easy kids not the stuggling or unmotivated. That is sad.

Learning requires good teaching and both require understanding of communication between the two as to have the success of a good education.
We all need to learn the skills of life and as long as we live we are never to old to learn.

hmmmmmm I agree with you that if they have not learned to add fractions by the time they are in the sixth grade-there is not much to strive for. Apparently the child is either not applying themself or just does not care cause Momma said that she never uses fractions and don't see why we have to learn them. Yep I agree life skills is more in line for several. Unlike homeboy, I don't recall reading where u claim to have a degree. hmmmm go figure.

And who said I was the one teaching? I am no teacher, or do not claim to be. I never said I was the one teaching.

Unfortunately, there are many, many parents who cannot work with fractions. They have forgotten the rules.

I have long said that we don't expect every child to grow up to be a professional baseball or football player...they do not all have the athletic skills. Why do we expect every child to grow up to get a college education.....they do not all have the same intelligence. That's why there's an AVERAGE IQ of 100, some are above that and some are below.

Has anyone said they expected your child or grandchild to be college oriented. If you know he or she is having problems, then why do you expect more out of him than he can give. Those math helpers probably couldn't help anyway, if he is not capable of understanding.
