Re: CA. TK-K classroom organization/no aide

    Hi K Fair,

    I was wondering, now that the year is half over, how are
    things going for you? Did you find a way to work things out
    so that your kinders get all their curriculum and your TKs
    get the differentiated curriculm? Did you ever get an aide or
    some help of some kind with your class?
