    Former Employee - Paraprofessional in Midland, MI

    I worked at Midland Public Schools part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This job entails working with children with special needs. It is part-time and work experience depends upon school working in. Midland High administrators are involved and helpful. This can be a very rewarding experience for someone who enjoys working with kids. The hours are capped at 29 per week... this is good for some people.

    Cons

    Administration down town does not always support educational goals. There are no benefits for parapros. Hours are capped at 29 hours a week, this is good or bad depending upon work goals. You do not get to choose your type of placement. There is not much upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Paraprofessionals need more support to do their jobs, benefits and more hours would help retain Paraprofessionals. This position is not comparablei in pay or benefits to other paraprofessional positions within the state. Paras need to have access to IEP's of the students they are working with in order to fully and successfully meet the needs of the student. Without the information they are at a loss as to what their duties and goals are for the student which makes it difficult for them to work with their student.
