  • Check in with the school’s main office for assignment.

  • Review teacher’s lesson plans before students arrive.

  • If possible, greet students at the classroom door.

  • Follow the teacher’s detailed instructions, which will include information about lunch and any changes in classes/subjects throughout the day.

  • Leave a review of the day for the teacher.

  • Tidy up the classroom and organize any student work.

  • Check out with the main office.
