I think if you let people advance who are already within the system. Also it shouldn’t be so hard to be rehired if you weren’t fired. I also think they should not let the principals have full control of who get hired. They tend to hire friends and family.

Please be aware before you become a sub. These supervisors (principal) do not follow the Uft contract for permanent paraprofessional. They will have you do things that a 1:1 suppose to do. When you explain your self to your union rep at your school they turn a blind eye and become deaf to your concerns. It’s better to be a sub you change schools you don’t have to be in the same school dealing with all kind of nepotism dictatorship and acrimony from staff members. The recent raise is almost making as a permanent para. If you don’t have a degree your salary will plunge becoming permanent. I understand the benefit part. The salary para makes is low income. My advice stay a sub build your own 401 k health insurance. Do Lyft and Uber during the summer or work at a summer day camp. Or sub for the DOE during the summer. The choice is yours

I left the DOE because I couldn’t advance. I worked for 19 years in a position that I was very good at and never got any complaints while doing my job. I got the necessary certifications for advancement but did not after several years of trying. Got discouraged because I was told I needed to know and speak Spanish.
