Paraprofessional Development Day

October 26, 2019 - 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM

Event Description

Target Audience:  MISD paraprofessionals ONLY

“You Can’t Pour From an Empty Cup:  Self Care for Paras” - Gandhi said that “the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”  Education has always been and now more than ever, one of the most difficult professions to serve in.  In order to be at your best for the students and families you serve, it is important that you take care of yourself first.  This session will focus on how the “stress” of teaching can lead to “compassion fatigue” and “burnout” if you do not engage in positive self-care strategies.

and

“Paraprofessionals are Valuable Members of the Classroom Team” - This session will review proactive supports to help keep students engaged.  We will discuss strategies to increase student independence and you will walk away with better understanding of the various tools and strategies to increase positive behavior.
