Volunteer Norms

 

Volunteering in a K-12 classroom is a fantastic way to learn about teaching, to share passion for a subject area and to assist teachers.  Always remember that the teacher is ultimately responsible for the content and tone of the course and that you are there to support him or her.  Please communicate frequently with the instructor you are supporting to make sure that your role is clear and that you are both feeling satisfied with how the experience is unfolding.

You should always follow the norms below.  These represent minimum expectations and your host teacher may choose to override or modify any of them.
