Great benefits but extremely underpaid for the work that is done. High stress job working in moderate to severe classrooms. However it is a great opportunity to gain experience in job related fields associated with the mod-to-severe population. Kids are always great to work and you learn so much from them! In my 10+ years working for the district in various subbing locations and three permanent positions, I only found one site that was exceptional. Other locations were unjustly, passive, unappreciated, and unconcern with paraeducators and often times did not take care of major issues regarding safety and health. High turn over rates so I suggest getting experience by subbing so you can choose who you work with, in a desired location/environment.
