Paraprofessional Appreciation Day

Today is Paraprofessional Appreciation Day! What is Paraprofessional Appreciation Day you may ask? Here is what We Are Teachers says on the subject(they also mention some neat ways to celebrate Paraprofessionals):

Paraprofessionals, or paras, teaching assistants, or instructional assistants, do a little of everything in schools. They support classes, are assigned to specific students in special education, help with substituting and supporting the general running of the school, and help supervise students.

Parapros are—we’ll say it—not paid enough for the work they do each day. Paraprofessional Appreciation Day is a chance to put them in the spotlight and recognize the dedication they bring to students each day.

So, a HUGE thank you to the Paras at Hay Springs Public School: Twila, Mindie, Cara, Carrie, Jake, and MaKena!  You guys ROCK!
