Building Relationships with Staff is Just as Important
as Building Relationships with Students!
It is ESSENTIAL to take the time to get to know your para-professionals and make them feel VALUED in your classroom.
A simple way to do that is through questionnaires to get them on both a personal and professional level.
- Take out the awkward ice breaker activities
- Add in an opportunity for paraprofessionals to have a voice
These questionnaires are great for Quick References in the following:
- Holidays to identify unique or personalized gifts
- Create schedules that set both students and staff up for success
- In times of conflict, look back to see if there are changes you can make to resolve them
- Identify areas for quick PD or Learning Opportunities
