Former Public School Paraeducator at Seattle Public Schools

Prepare differently if you are a first time Paraeducator or have experience.
If it's your first time, speak to any other prior work with children and or any schooling you've had regarding learning difficulties and behavior management.
If you are experienced, share some stories of building relationship with students, handling difficult behaviors, and any self led curriculum aids.
In either case try to tailor your responses to the setting. Paraeducating Pre-K is vastly different from highschool, same goes for EBD compared to non-EBD. Be sure you know the setting you are applying for and speak to your strengths for that specific setting.
