  • Yes, I have ... it was a once-a-week commitment here, so about a 32 hour a month commitment.

  • It depends on the teacher. I was last year in kindergarten and am this year as well. Last year there were a bunch of us. I planned the winter holiday party and would volunteer to help out with testing, field day, and assemblies. It can be a lot of work, but it is fun!

  • I only did in the Pre-K class and it was fun but wouldn't want to do it full time like the teacher it made me realize how much work goes into teaching the little ones and this year i plan on doing it in kindergarten

  • Yep. In our school it doesn't involve much - mainly going along on field trips & helping with the Thanksgiving lunch (K-4 dress like Pilgrims & play games after eating a special lunch).

  • No, I have not. I've seen what is involved, and it's a lot at this school. I'm not interested.
