my aide is only part time. She comes in at 930 just when my students return from connect classes. She sits down at either her desk or the kidney table and waits until I tell her something to do. I have tried to set routines and she ignores them. If she doesn't want to do what I ask, she just does not. I document but to be honest, I doubt going to admin will accomplish anything...long story short, no need to waste my time. she is interviewing for other jobs and is not even kind of caring and sweet with the students. She told one child she would slap them and call the mom and tell them. I know I need to talk to her and follow up with this in some way but I don't know how. I don't know how to approach the situation, address it with the administrator, and so on. oh, and she even gossips all over the school about any and everything.... any advice would be greatly appreciated. TIA!
