“The importance and value of our paraprofessionals cannot be overstated,” said Lora Thurston, the Arlington ISD special education director. “They are critical to our work and to meet the specialized needs of our students. Without our paraprofessionals, our students would not receive the intense individualized instruction and services they need to meet their goals, close their academic and physical gaps.”

You’ll also lead classroom activities and monitor student progress and performance.
