    • Maximizing Adult Support

      • Paraprofessionals, also referred to as paraeducators, para-pros, instructional assistants, program aides, are a critical component to supporting students who are struggling.  In this session, participants will examine the roles and responsibilities of paraprofessionals.  Improving the independence of students in social and academic settings is a critical component to an effective system of support.  We will develop a toolbox of strategies that focus on helping students become more independent and better able to navigate classroom instruction and environments across the school day.

    • Differentiation

      • Every student is unique and has strengths and areas to grow.  Sometimes students need scaffolds, supports, extensions, accommodations, modifications, enrichment activities, etc.  in order to reach their full potential.  It is important that we differentiate for all students to push every student along the learning continuum.  In this session, we will examine what differentiation can look like in a variety of settings and different strategies we can use to support students along their educational journey.

    • Restorative Practices

      • Restorative practices focus on  how to improve and repair relationships between people and communities. The purpose is to build healthy communities, increase social capital, decrease antisocial behavior, repair harm and restore relationships.  Learners will be introduced to restorative practice techniques such as community circles, using affective statements and questions, impromptu conferencing/restorative conversations, and formal conferencing.  Learners will be able to use restorative practices in their work with students to build and maintain trusting relationships with adults and peers, a positive school community, and repair harm.

  • March 24, 2022, 3:00pm-4:00pm

    • Communication

      • Communication is a foundational skill in relationships.  Learners will explore how to build effective relationships with fellow teachers, students and school personnel.  The group will explore scenarios that many paraprofessionals face in their role with students and in the classroom.  A key aspect of communication is the development and maintenance of appropriate boundaries with students, staff and families.  This session will also cover courageous conversations and mandated reporting protocols
