Paraprofessional in Valley View
on May 22, 2022
I do my job and leave. I have met great people here and made lifelong friends. I love the kids and enjoy my job very much. Right now, there is a fairly new superintendent and there is a lot of stress here, because she wants to make an imprint on everything and hasn't been told that the Edina schools are run by the Edina moms. I feel like I am doing something that matters to the community at large and that I make a difference in the lives of my students and families. I consider myself to be retired and this is my retirement gig. Always shocked and excited when the end of the school year arrives and happy when it returns in late August.
Educational Assistant in Edina, MN

I had two roles at Edina and both of them were ruined by the “higher ups”. In different years, one of them would watch each and everything that paras did and support the teachers but not the paras. Good to note that the teachers I worked with were awesome! In another role, the higher up took the side of the parent since they worked in the district and no discipline happened to the student that was in the wrong. This district sadly pays their support staff an unlivable wage.
Special Education Paraprofessional in Edina, MN

I loved working with students and enjoyed the flexibility of this position. The hardest part was working with some of the neurodiverse students who had extreme learning, emotional, and behavioral needs. There was no training for physical aggression. We had walkies to call for backup when a student was having an extreme physical outburst/emotional meltdown. Often there were not enough walkies for staff. The staff (SpEd teachers, asst. principal, principal) did not help with training, support or interventions. In my experience I was punched, pushed from behind on the stairs, kicked, had things thrown at my head, stabbed with a pencil or experienced some form of physical aggression on a daily basis. Other paras were great at helping and providing support but management did not. There were many students who needed a lot more support than what a $17/hour untrained para could provide. On the other hand, I also worked with a teacher who sometimes had nothing for me to do. There were days when I would work with a few students for only 1 hour a day. Some days I had no students and I would proactively ask for things to do everywhere from the front office to supporting teachers by doing admin work. I noticed that other paras also had nothing to do and would study, watch Netflix or play games on their phones. It was disturbing because I know there were students who needed help. SpEd is disorganized and there's no training, no specific person to ask for help. You're kinda thrown into the situation and expected to figure it all out on your own.

Great school district with great support. Working for the ELC was a great experience with wonderful staff and a knowledgeable leader. I would recommend this school district for others.

Edina and it's schools are in constant flux on what it wants to be. They claim to be a small town community, with small town ideals, but with that comes much ignorance and prejudice. That is reflected in both it's community and it's schools.While some leaders are looking to change that, the greater community is unable or unwilling to change which causes constent strife between community and the schools, leading to a less than good work place.Additionally, like many schools, the pay scales are far out of order and many roles have little to no opportunity for growth.
