EAU CLAIRE -- Teacher aides play an important role in the daily activities of students in almost every school in Wisconsin.
But many find themselves in situations they're unprepared for, such as supervising students on the playground, in the hallways or during lunch.
To hone the skills needed to be an effective teacher aide, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Education Outreach will sponsor "Effective Aideing in Education," a workshop to provide participants with strategies and techniques needed to supervise and discipline students.
The one-day workshop will be held from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at four locations in Wisconsin this spring. Locations include Comfort Suites Rock Garden in Green Bay on Feb. 26, Best Western Midway Hotel in Wausau on March 26, Best Western Midway Hotel in Brookfield on April 22, and Holiday Inn-West in Madison on April 23.
The workshop will be facilitated by Dr. T. J. Sheridan, who has more than 30 years of experience training teachers and aides.
Regular and special education aides who want to improve their instructional skills and become more knowledgeable in the basic tasks associated with their jobs are encouraged to attend.
The cost of the workshop is $95 per participant, which includes materials, refreshments and lunch.
For a brochure or more information about the workshop, contact the Education Outreach office at (715) 836-5843.
