To all of the teachers, parents and students who have a para-pro/aide that works in your classrooms...
Have you hugged your para-pro lately?
Have you told them thank you for the hard work that they do for you?
Man this week has been an eye opener. I always knew that the aides worked hard, but a week spent "in their shoes", and I am beat.
This week I am subbing for a para-pro and I realized how much work they give these people.
So go out and give the aide/para-pro a big hug, and tell her thank you!
