Description of your role and duties: At Blessed Sacrament I was a Teacher's Assistant for the 5th grade classroom. I supported my Lead Teacher in all subjects and facilitated my own "literature circles" during the reading period. Every day we would read chapters of an assigned book then do corresponding worksheets. After, I was able to chose my own book to read with my own group and create my own follow up assignments to prove comprehension of the reading.
