I know my mom is dying to know how my first week of work went this week so I will share with everyone.
My morning starts off in the office with assisting Debbie and helping with Tardy's (starting Tuesday).
From there I head to a resource room for an hour and work with a group of 5th graders and 3rd graders on math skills.
Then I head back to the office to relieve Debbie for her break. Starting Tuesday after the break I will stay in the office and work on attendance. This past week I have been heading out for morning recess duty. Yeah, no more recess duty starting next week.
From there I get a 15 minute break and then I head pack to the resource room to help a student with reading for 30 minutes.
Back to the office to cover for Debbie during her lunch break. During this time I usually have to administer meds to a couple of noon time regulars. After her lunch I head out to Lunch Recess Duty for 45 minutes. When Recess Duty is over I get a 30 minute lunch.
After lunch I head to a 5th grade class to help during writing. I have discovered that I need to brush up on those skills. I can write for myself with a lot of proof reading but helping others that don't get it write is challenging. When done there I head out to do bus duty for the primary students who get out at 2:30. Most students walk home, ride their bikes home, get picked up by parents, and a handful ride the bus home.
When that is over I head to a 4th grade class and do spelling conferences with the students. From there I head back to the office for a short period and then back outside for Intermediate bus duty. They get out at 3:30. By the time I finish duty then I get to go home. This week however, I have been staying a little late to be trained on the computer programs that I will be using.
So that is my day in a nutshell. I enjoy the job but I can not wait to get back into the classroom teaching PE.
