My lifelong goal was to be an educator. Early on I only wanted to be a general educator. I didn't want to work with "those" kids. I was scared I wouldn't be able to teach them. I was worried that all my efforts wouldn't be enough because of their learning challenges. I was scared that I would fail as a teacher if I worked with kids with IEPs. Read these stories to find that not only was I wrong, but my students surpassed all the "You can't" that was directed their way.
This 30 minute video teacher training on working with paraprofessionals answers many questions that teachers ask. What is my paraprofessional supposed to be doing? What am I allowed to ask my paraeducator to do? What information can I share with my classroom assistant about the students? What does the the aide want from me? Also included is a PDF, 20 Points for Discussion: A guide to get the conversation moving.
This 40 minute training will answer the questions many paraprofessionals ask and all districts want them to know the answers too. What am I supposed to be doing? What does help look like? Can I say "no" to a task? What is an IEP? and many more. Also included is a PDF, 20 Points for Discussion: A guide to get the conversation moving.
