I didn't know where to ask, so I thought of tPF and the many wonderful ladies here.. My 40something-old mom has finally decided that she wants to be a teacher's aide! She loves kids and really wants to do something now that I'm gone for college. Only question is.. she doesn't know how. Does anyone know how to become a teacher's aide? Are there any educational requirements or whatnot? Will it hurt her that she doesn't have much experience in the educational field? My mom and I are both kinda stumped on the subject. We will probably drop by our local elementary school and ask but I didn't think it would hurt to ask here. TIA!
