Paraeducators have long been considered valuable members of the preschool team. Working alongside and under the direction of teachers and other certified professionals, these staff members assist and support teachers in many different ways. Join us in this webinar to look for opportunities to enhance the partnerships between paraeducators and teachers to implement best practices in the early childhood classroom. We will look at how to define roles, determine responsibilities, and support ongoing communication with paraeducators. Strategies to support paraeducators in learning how to collect data, provide accommodations, and scaffold for young children will also be shared. Collaboration as a team is a key component, so teams of teachers and paraeducators are encouraged to attend together.
