Last year, my first year teaching, I had one para that I had to plan a schedule for in and out of my classroom. I believe I did a good job building a relationship and keeping her active in the classrooms. Part of the way through this school year, the school district hired another para to help me with some severe behavior students. After my "experience" working with a few different paras, including subs and the other paras in my school, I have had some ideas. I would like to make a "para handbook" to set up guidelines, expectations, strengths, weaknesses, schedules, etc. to help me when working with new paras, and as expectations for me to refer to when things aren't running smoothly.
If you saw my post about FBAs/IEPs, I will be incorporating and expanding upon information along those lines.
If you have any suggestions, words of wisdom, questions, information that teachers learn in teacher ed courses that they take for granted that paras were not taught, etc. I would appreciate any advice.
It is my GOAL to share what ever type of "handbook" I develop with my followers as a FREEBIE:)
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer!
