A special education paraeducator, sometimes called a teacher’s aide or assistant, can be a real right-hand man (or woman) to the classroom teacher. Classroom teachers depend on the knowledge and skills of pareaeducators to accomplish the responsibility to deliver an education to students.The Central Intermediate Unit 10 offers trainings designed specifically for the needs of paraeducators. Each year, the CIU 10 holds an annual conference in Centre County just for paraeducators. At this conference, paraeducators receive twelve (12) professional development hours. In addition, many of the other professional development opportunities offered by the CIU 10 are beneficial for paraeducators to attend.
