Multiple resources within a classroom are a key to success in academic learning. Whether financial or extra staff support, obtaining more resources is not a small feat for an educator within the public school system. Within a classroom there are busy students, an over worked teacher, homework to be graded and to be assigned, as well as day to day assignments. Having all these activities going on can cause teachers abundant amounts of stress, not to mention if a student were to require an Individual Education Plan (IEP), this then means the teacher needs an extra set of hands to provide the necessary assistance in giving the child a full and well-rounded education. The article, It Takes a Community to Teach a Child: Teachers Success with Helpers will be a resourceful tool and an easy read for future and present educators. The article expresses ideas on how to obtain successful resources for the general and special education teaching population. It will provide successful tips for educators to rely on building a classroom that supports a child’s educational future.
