A Series of Firsts
Cradlerock Elementary gave me a number of first time experiences. This was my first time working in an elementary school that shared a building with a middle school. It was also my first time working in a Media Center that, rather than having a dedicated paraeducator, opperated with a rotation of paraeducators on loan from the various grades. Lastly, the anual Fall Bookfair was scheduled to fall during my stay at Cradlerock, giving me the opportunity to set up and run my first Bookfair. When Laura visited the school to settle up the Bookfair account, she reported that my sales had exceeded her average sales by 20%. What a successful first run!
