If parents are truly interested in ensuring a good education for their kids, then becoming a teacher aide is the perfect way to make that happen.
Chances are you've already spent some time volunteering in the classroom. But as a teacher aide, you can assist the classroom teacher with implementing the curriculum on a daily basis. You'll get to work with students one-on-one and in groups and help the teacher plan lessons and prepare the classroom.
The best part is you work while your kids are in school, meaning you can be there when they get home.
