Bridget Wilson sits alongside a special-needs student, helping him understand the lesson being presented by a teacher at the front of the mainstream classroom.

The Lodi Unified School District paraeducator works under the supervision of teachers to provide instruction and other direct services to students and their families. Among the job duties are one-on-one tutoring, assisting with classroom management and acting as translators.

    Hi, Samantha. Thanks for your comment. When I wrote the article, I had not seen the photo of your friend and was not writing about him, in particular. The print version uses "her" as an example only of the type of students Mrs. Wilson works with. Sorry if this caused him embarrasment. As for the mispelling of his last name, a correction will be published in the newspaper.

    Okay this kid is one of my close friends and his name is actually Zack Onstott not onstotty and also in the first line it portrays him as a she when it says "bridgett wilson sits alongside a special-needs student, helping 'her'..." i just wanted to point this out because it kind of embarrassed him.
