I recently interviewed for a kindergarten position at a small school. At the end of the interview, they let me know that they would not be hiring a kindergarten aide. Is this standard practice anywhere? The expected class size is 24 students. Both of my children attended schools where each K class had an aide. My mother also works with kindergarten and has an aide. My stepfather has been a teacher, principal, and super in 5 school districts and each had K aides. Are there any comments or feelings that experienced teachers can share (this is my first year)? Thanks!
