How do you become a helper? How are you guys chosen? What do you have to do?

Dear Salsaddict,

There are posts in Helpers Corner, under "You've got a question..." that will answer your question regarding becoming a helper.

As to helpers responsibilities, first and foremost, to "help" the students get the most out of the class. That includes: joining rotation, assisting the instructor, providing assistance to the students, offering encouragement, answering questions, doing demonstrations, taking attendance, etc. Outside of the classroom, some of us are responsible to be outing hosts, as well as responsiblities for the website (ie. writing columns, moderating the forum, etc)

It is on a volunteer basis, so we help out for whatever amount of time our day to day schedules permits. That said, we are expected to commit to whatever we signed up for, for the whole semester. Firstly, regardless of what we are responsible for (ie. take attendance, assist the instructor, or to join rotation), a helper's presence in a class is very much accounted for. Secondly, helpers are role models for the students, and if we don't show up regularly or if we show up late, it shows them that it is alright to do the same.

Hope that answers your question. If you are interested in becoming a helper, you should speak to Sharon about it!
