    Hello, Good luck to you! I began teaching first grade after being home with my boys,now I've been at the same school - Catholic and my boys are there as well in middle school. I've taught first grade now for 6 years. I started with 30 kids and have fluctuated between 22 and 27. I have a full time assistant who does whatever I ask her. But not all are like that. Be very sure to meet wiht your assistant before school starts and be very clear what you want them to do. Small groups, correcting, book orders, bulletin boards,etc. Go over your discipline and procedures with her/him. Be very clear what you expect. Enlist their cooperation but remember you are the teacher. Make it clear to her/him that the children will be expected to obey them as well as you. You will kind of be partners in the class but you are the leader. Respect and value their position and it should work fine. Good luck and God Bless!! Maryann
