Boosting Teacher-Paraeducator Partnerships and Morale

PORTLAND, OR, August 23, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — As behavior challenges continue to rise in schools, we are relying more and more on paraeducators to understand and address student behavior. However, in order for paraeducators to be most effective in classrooms, they need clear expectations, regular communication, and strong leadership and coaching from teachers. 321 Insight is proud to announce the launch of a new on-demand PD series, “Building Effective Teacher-Paraeducator Partnerships” designed to help teachers administrators build strong teacher-paraeducator relationships in the classroom.

The module includes four 6-minute training videos and printable resources to use in currently scheduled training sessions or independent study for teachers.

“We recognize that many teachers haven’t had the opportunity for training on coaching and supervising paraeducators in their classrooms.” said Alia Jackson, President and CEO of 321 Insight. “Our new Building Effective Teacher-Paraeducator Partnerships’ module gives teachers and administrators a path for setting paras up for success this school year.”

This new series is a great companion to 321 Insight’s ParaSharp Series for paraeducator effectiveness. With easy-to-use videos, interactive discussions, planning and tracking tools this new series aligns with 321 Insight’s mission is to empower schools and districts to create a culture of well-being where all staff have the mindset, essential skills and knowledge to help all students thrive.

321 Insight was created by Dr. Will Henson and Dr. Skip Greenwood based on their desire to fill a critical hole in the education system. 321 Insight’s training is research-based and built on best practices that come from hands-on experience in real classrooms. 321 Insight’s online professional development toolkits are focused on increasing paraeducator effectiveness and implementing trauma-informed practices to help districts create a culture where staff and students thrive.

ParaSharp online professional development builds confidence, improves effectiveness, and increases job satisfaction for paraeducators with engaging on-demand 3 to 13 minute videos, interactive discussions, planning, and tracking tools.
