Including being responsible for: classroom set up and regular lesson rotation, curriculum development, IEP’s for each child, child evaluations and parent teacher conferences, monthly parent education nights, and regular parent newsletters. I was also a teacher’s assistant in a Montessori classroom for over 2 yrs cumulative before that.
