    Congrats Frank! Any way that you can get your foot in the door and prove yourself as an asset to the school will positively get you your own classroom. I started out as an aid and I made sure that I became invaluable to the teachers that I worked closely with. They in turn told the principal and advocated for me and I did end up with my own classroom. One suggestion that I can make to you is to ask the principal to come and observe you teaching a lesson and have a follow-up appointment for constructive feedback. I did this and at that meeting I expressed that my ultimate goal was to have my own classroom. I have always found that when observed "less is more". Choose one topic, skill, strategy, or whatever and do a really thorough lesson. I feel that if you "pull out all the bells and whistles" it could backfire. Stick to one thing and just do it really well. Hope I've helped.
