How Principals view AEW role

‘They must also be prepared to wear two hats and juggle the responsibility of being a school employee and a community member and that is not always easy”

slide38

“It is not good role modelling for an AEW to tell students how important attendance and punctuality is and then not following their own advice”

slide39

“My AEW is often absent from class due to outside school commitments. When in class she sometimes does the work I set, however she likes to choose what or who she will work with”
