Tomorrow (November 17) is National Educational Support Professionals Day. What can you and your charges do to celebrate? These folks work tirelessly to make the school experience productive and outstanding for many people. Be sure to say THANK YOU to paraprofessional aides, mentors, special education teachers and helpers, speech/language teachers, therapists and even the secretaries, administrators, and custodial staff persons. Schools simply could not function without all of these dedicated people.
Ideas for your celebration:
- Write thank you notes to the supporting professionals in your school.
- Research the requirements for these jobs and find out about training, compensation, working conditions and so forth.
- Make cupcakes and take them around to the support professionals who are working today.
- Make cards to brighten the day of support professionals.
