Supervising Paraeducators

Supervising Paraeducators

Perhaps now more than ever paraeducators are playing critical roles in helping certified and licensed school staff serve an increasingly diverse student population. In order for paraeducators to be effective, teachers and principals need to have a clear understanding of the role and how to effectively direct and oversee these highly dedicated people. In this course we'll define the key roles and responsibilities of supervising teachers, discuss the need for teacher and paraeducator teamwork and highlight best practices related to the management and supervision of paraeducators performing commonly assigned tasks.
