Para Perspectives

What is the Para Perspectives column?

The NEA Para Perspectives column provides readers the opportunity to learn from fellow paraeducators and other experts in the field as they share their thoughts, opinions and views on issues important to them and paraeducator careers. Visitors will also be able to add their insight and personal experiences to individual Perspective columns through our comment feature.


The views expressed in this column are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the NEA or its affiliates.
