I opened my classroom by myself in Decemeber. I have not had a co-teacher since then and I have a co-teacher starting tomorrow and i'm kind of nervous about it. She was with me last week for a few hours in the morning 3 days and I really liked her. She has openly told me she does not like "disciplining" the kids and I noticed that a lot last week. I have one little girl who is very hyper and she's been hitting and pushing a lot latley. Last week every time she pushed someone or hit somesone my co-teacher brought her to me and told mee she did something. After a few times I told her that she can't do thast every time and I need her help in doing this or else it's going to turn into good cop bad cop. She attempted after that but I still had to step in a few times because the little girl wasn't listening. I also had her serve lunch the other day and her serving sizes were way too big. I didn't explain that before hand because she had worked in 2 different daycares before and I thought she could handle it. After lunch I explained the serving sizes and all that and hopefully she'll do better next week. My major question is how do I add her into the classroom smoothly with all the classroom planning and just running everything smoothly. I'm very nervous about that and she is 18 with a 1 1/2 year old and seems to be very quiet. Should I sit down with her and talk with her.... i'm just so confused!
