Glad someone has a clue. The other teacher's comments are definitely limited in understanding. I love any opportunity to do lesson plans and am good at it but can't; I've taken Praxis and other tests and done well on them but am not respected for my knowledge and skill or given opportunity to use them much; etc etc etc I may find another way to earn a living and then volunteer an hour or two a week to work with kids. Inclusion is particularly difficult, having numerous classes to go to and work with several kids in each class, but not having the benefit of knowing what was going on before I got to the class, no textbook to refer to, no lesson plans, no place to sit, no place to hang my bag or coat, no respect because all is defered to the teacher and so in a situation where can't help the teacher accomplish what she or he would ultimately want to accomplish with those particular students. now I'm just ramblingAnyone who dares to insult their intelligence or motivation should get an education themselves. Teacher's aides are a vital part of the school. As people who work towards the education of our children and are held to the same standards as teachers, it is only right that they have a better salary.

This world is too much based around greed, money & power struggles. It would be a much better place if there was more love.
I work as a teachers aide but am resigning soon. I am grateful to have a job but I cannot save for my future dreams on this horrifically low pay. I love the beautiful students and staff. But my health & happiness is also very important to me! I have made a huge difference in my time there & now I know it's time to move on.
A big congratulations to all the hard working people out there who dedicate their energy into making this world a better place.
Take care of yourself!!!
Peace love & Gratitide :)

They deserve a living wage! Corbett has cut education while increasing prison funding. He needs to go back to whatever rock he crawled out from under. A real pos
