What is your title?
I am sitting in a session listening to Anna Lou Pickett at the National conference (founder of the National Resource Center for Paraprofessionals). At the beginning of her session she talked about the titles paraprofessional and paraeducator. She mentioned that positions such as paralegal, paramedic and noted that everyone knows what those positions do and that paraeducator is more descriptive than paraprofessional
In just the first day of the conference I have heard a number of different terms: paraeducator, paraprofessional, teacher aide, instructional assistant, educational assistant...
- What is the title of "paraeducators" in your school district?
- What job title do you like best?
