Tell Us Your Story!

How do you use your Para Power to impact students, colleagues, and your association? What’s a topic area or issue that you feel most passionate about?

Are you a teacher, administrator, or other school staff member who works with a paraeducator(s)?

We know that the best learning comes from the experiences of those who work with students on a daily basis.

This section will be used to learn about the firsthand experiences of paraeducators as well as the experiences of teachers, administrators, and other school staff who work with paraeducators every day. Submissions may be considered for future NEA publications and digital platforms.
