Elona Hartjes has written a wonderful post about the importance of paraeducators in her classroom titled, Paraprofessionals and Teachers Work Together as a Team for the Benefit of Students.
From her opening paragraph:
I’ve been really fortunate to have worked with some wonderful paraprofessionals at different times in my teaching career. These men and women made a huge a difference to the lives of the students in my class. For that matter, they’ve made a huge difference to my life as well.
She then goes on to discuss some of the experiences that she has had with paraeducators during her career. You can also listen to her post on the site. Thanks Elona!
