Worked in classrooms with ages two years through elementary school students. Aided in helping students through lessons, snack, nap time and even recess. Planned activities, created materials used in lessons, created implemented management strategies, and instructed lessons when necessary. Helped students with homework in various subjects. Quite flexible on where I was needed and transitioned regular teachers out for lunch regularly. Even though hired on as an instructional assistant, I was able to be left alone to care for students as if I were a regular instructor. Resolved issues students had with each other through discussion, and handled emergency situations as needed. Documented accidents and other pertinent information about students as needed, and discussed them with parents when they came to pick up their children. Became a confidant for students as necessary and allowed them to discuss issues they were having within their lives.
