My name is Gina.
Welcme, Gina! I'm glad you found the board. We always enjoy meeting new teachers with new ideas and opinions. Please visit and post often.
I know what you mean about teaching aides. Some think you have to tell them when to breathe and some think they know more than you do. I've had some great ones, several were licensed teachers waiting for a job, and others were moms that just had the talent to teach and control kids. However I've had a few bad one too. That really makes you appreciate the great ones.
How long will you be taking classes for your new certification?
