It's funny, I teach upper grades and have for the entire 10 years that I've been teaching so I've never had an assistant. This year I had one for 30 minutes twice a week and I literally just stared at her the first several times she was in my room thinking "What am I going to do with you?" LOL! I think I feel kind of the opposite. I'm content to not have one because I'm just so used to not having one, so it feels like having something extra I have to plan for. I'm sure if I had one with any sort of regularity and one that was used to working with upper grades in an instructional context then I would probably find it an invaluable resource like you do! :)

    I don't know what I would do without mine. It is great having someone else in the classroom that can help monitor spelling groups and knows how/when they are ready to move up to the next sort.
