Help children reach their own goals!

Paraeducators work with students in schools and other educational settings. They are not teachers, but they work alongside teachers and provide additional support to students, teachers and parents. For example, a paraeducator might work with group or one-on-one tutoring for certain subjects, act as a translator, help parents get involved in classroom activities, or support lessons in computer labs.
