You know, now that I think of things a little more (refer to What's Going on Here?)... I can't help but wonder why my exerience at Huntington Learning Center doesn't help give me an edge against people with actual teaching degrees. After all, I not only do 1:1 instruction, but do floor instruction as well in which I'm working anywhere with 2 to 4 kids at one time. Many of my Huntington colleagues are actual certificate holders and do exactly what I do yet they get chosen for paraprofessional positions over me!!! So why isn't my Huntington experience helping me at all, especially when it comes to Instructional Assistant/Aide positions? :huh: You'd think that my small group instruction at Huntington proves I can work with whatever materials and curricula are given to me.
