I am sad tonite. The financial problems of the state have reached the fairly stable school corp. where I teach kdg. We learned at the end of the day today that 4 of our paras (3 of whom help in kdg classrooms) were told that they will not have employment after the close of school on Monday. They were devestated and we were greatly saddened. My para will be back, but she was told that she most likely will not be in my classroom. She and I have become extremely close over the past 3 years and work so well together. Not a great way to start the weekend.
