Q. What does it mean to be an aid?

In some classes the aids are moving constantly as they are passing out things, collecting things, helping students with supplies, projects and more. In other classes, aids seemingly are doing nothing, but in reality they are. They are another set of eyes and a reminder too. Where they sit can often mean the difference between a child listening to the teacher, or paying attention to their neighbor. The aids are there to know how the class flows, they see what is being taught week to week and should the teacher not be able to be there one week they are there to see to it that the class continues in the flow of what the teacher has been doing.
