I have a para who comes in most days to one of my eight grade classes.
I think I have about 9 special needs kids in that class. It works fine.
The only problem was having to speak with her about helping students
by working on their art with them. She stopped and started doing her own
projects along side them. She knows the kids and can be soft or firm as
needed. I've had other paras who were just there.
