A paraeducator assists a teacher in teaching students and carrying out daily tasks and activities in accordance with the school curriculum. Some duties include helping in planning and scheduling class activities, education programs, encouraging a healthy learning environment, monitoring and engaging with students and providing clerical and administrative support as required. The typical career progression of a paraeducator is as a teacher following further education and certifications being obtained.
Although some companies only require paraeducators to possess a high school diploma, the majority require a minimum of an associate's degree preferably in paraeducator or a related field. As this position involves engaging with students, additional certification in special education or child development is greatly valued. Other skills a successful candidate will possess include exceptional verbal and written communication and a strong passion in the education system.
