On top of that I was also asked to be on several different committee's to help plan school events and other related topics. I was also the PLC (professional learning community) leader for kindergarten through second grade for several years. We had a weekly meeting discussed school events, teacher concerns, administration concerns, implementation of new curriculum, we also reviewed school data to ensure we were meeting state requirements.

I helped with classroom management and behavior supports, I would run small and whole group instruction, curriculum implementation, data tracking, and I also was in charge of holding a weekly meeting for all the paraprofessionals to help support them in the classroom, to address any upcoming school events, and to address any concerns they had. 
In that time I was on the behavior team to help support with student behaviors in other classrooms and to help effectively and safely transport students out of the classroom to a safe environment. 
When our high school opened I was asked to perform all student placement assessments for the 300+ students we accepted that year. It was my job to schedule, prep, and administer the appropriate assessment to each student. Ask and answer any parent questions, and to help place students into correct classrooms.

My calls were recorded and reviewed by my team administrators. I always received excellent scored in customer service and support.
