Ok - I am teaching first grade for the first time. I have taught pre-k with an aide for four years. Each grade level has one classroom with an aide. The councelor came to me and told me I was going to have the aide this year because I know how to utilize them im my classroom. Here is my problem. I will have two different aides- one MWF a different one T TH. One aide was in first grade last year and is telling everyone they are putting her in my room because she knows how to run the show and I am just going to follow her lead. The other aide is a known gossip who will want to talk to me and not stay on task. Now I am dreading having anyone in my class!!! Also- they both have kids and I do not want to have a class full of kids after school everyday!! Advise? I only have 14 students and do not think anyone is way far behind. I was excited about school staring - now I am dreading it!! Oh yea- the two aides do not like eachother!
