Former Paraeducator at Santa Clara County Office of Education
almost 2 years ago
I went to a hiring event. The interview was simple and efficient with questions like "if a student is injured and the teacher isn't in the classroom, how do you deal with the student and the situation" or "if a student is throwing a tantrum and goes to hit another student, what do you do?" You'll also be asked to talk about your background and interests. Ideally, have two recommendations and also be prepared to take an exam on math, english, and the ability to read a schedule. If you have an associates degree the math and english portions of the exam aren't necessary.
