The process of effectively training paraeducators must include those who work most closely with them in the classroom – teachers. We recognize that strong teacher-paraeducator partnerships are the foundation of a successful learning environment – that’s why we created the Building Effective Teacher-Para Partnerships Series.

This on-demand PD series for teachers and leaders who work with, coach, and supervise paras provides the practical guidance that will make everyone more effective. These bite-sized videos and resources offer strategies to help develop effective partnerships that foster cooperation in the classroom and, most importantly, support and benefit your students.

Designed to fit into any teacher’s schedule, this 4-video series takes only 30 minutes to complete, and focuses on helping teachers:

  • Understand the importance of strong partnerships with paras
  • Identify paraeducator roles and responsibilities
  • Develop the 5 keys to creating strong and positive partnerships
  • Effectively coach and supervise paraeducators

Each video in this series includes a summary and discussion guide, and is designed to fit perfectly into staff or team meetings, PLCs, or independent PD.
