    Wow, I would love an aide!

    What in particular are you concerned about? Many are
    perfectly capable of taking a small group, taking a single
    child and teaching him a skill like tying their shoes,
    walking them across the campus someplace, supervising
    outside the bathroom.

    Like teachers, aides should not be in the bathroom with a
    child (except perhaps a special ed aide with a special ed
    child), alone in a room with a child of the opposite
    gender. They should support the teacher they are working
    with, not talking smack about them behind their back, and
    if something the teacher has done is questionable, they
    should politely ask the teacher about it.
