PROGRAM PRESENTERS AND FACILITATORS
New! A program to support your teaching assistants, teachers aides and paraprofessionals!
Teaching assistants and paraprofessionals are faced with challenging scenarios in their daily work. With our new TA Training program, we aim for teaching assistants, teachers aides and paraprofessionals to feel supported, confident in managing classroom behaviors and issues, and empowered overall to assist and support students, teachers and the school community.
TA'S WANT TRAINING AND SUPPORT
TAs tell us they are hungry for training that's customized to their needs. After a TA-focused PD we hosted in fall 2022, we received many comments from TAs who wanted more:
"I thought it was a great instruction and us TA's should have more opportunities for these classes!"
"I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and look forward to more."
"It was an excellent workshop, wish it was all day instead of half day."
"A great presentation! wish we had longer to work on this"
"I appreciated the TA specific training and I would welcome as much training as possible."
We believe this initiative will have an impact on staff satisfaction and retention, as well as classroom management.
We're offering a program that will provide support for your TAs and paraprofessionals from Jan. 31, 2023, to June 27, 2023. In-person training will be supplemented by a closed online message board and video conferencing, creating connections and building a network of support
