I am currently working as a teacher assistant at a charter school in West Michigan. I believe the first week overall went pretty well. Towards the end of the week we started getting into a groove on what exactly needs to be done every morning. That is, get the previous day’s absent students work out, setting up the lesson, and making copies for the lesson. We mostly watched from the back of the class. When the teacher completed the lesson, we walked around helping anyone that struggled. We also began to grade assignments and record these in the grade book. We should be starting to take role next week so the students get use to us more. We also discussed what and when we will be taking over. I will be taking over in a few weeks on the chapter about circles, surface area, and volume. I am really looking forward to this.
