Annoying Aid
In my current internship, I am working in a ESE Center school. I have 8 middle school students in a self-contained SVE classroom. The classroom is run very well, and there are very few behavior issues for the types of students that we have. If students get out of control, we have a radio that we use to call the behavior specialists. One of the aids will call for behavior at the drop of a hat, and does not even try to address little problems herself. My CT gets frustrated, and so do I, but she does not do anything about it. How could you handle this situation without causing problems between the teachers in the classroom?

I would have a meeting with the ad. They may not know that you and the other teacher feel this way and how is she supposed to know that the teachers does not like it if she never says anything. Yes, this meeting could get awkward but just let this ad know that you appreciate her and what she does for the classroom. I would, point out all of the positive things first and then go into this problem. I would also end on a positive so that she does not feel like you are attaching her.

I agree that having a meeting to clarify feelings is a great idea. Better then going straight to administration. Maybe even adding some sort of easy/fast signal between the teachers, and that at least 2 have to agree to call someone in.

I would for sure bring it up to her first and see if we can agree on meeting together and discussing what is appropriate and what is not. Going to administration would be my last resort.

I agree, talking it out is the best option.

I would ask the behavior specialist if we could have a meeting to address the protocol as to when to call for a behavior issue. I would ask that the meeting be very informal so that feelings won't get hurt. This way the aid won't feel like she is directly attacked and everyone will be on the same page as to when to call for assistance.

A simillar situation happened in my internship with an aid. The CT ended up having a conference with the administrtaion as well as the Aid. It was awkward but after a while of time and the aid not changing they eneded up letting her go.

I would suggest to the aid that the specialist only be called if it were a serious issue. That way the specialist can be in the classrooms that may actually need them.

I would have a talk with the aid and let her know that she needs to address these small problems herself, I'm sure she's just nervous abo9ut making a wrong decision.
