Teacher aides/paraprofessionals/teaching assistants can be invaluable in the classroom and it’s possible that with COVID-19 funding, many more will be hired.
Here are some resources that might be helpful – let me know what I’m missing:
Supporting Students and Teachers as a Paraprofessional ESL Educator: 6 Things You Can Try Now is by Valentina Gonzalez.
Making Best Use of Teaching Assistants is from The Educational Endowment Foundation.
Who Are Paraprofessionals and What Do They Do? is from Ed Week.
