Paraeducator resume sample Paraeducators are also known as teacher helps or teacher assistants. A few paraeducators work with a single college student, especially students with unique needs. Others work carefully with teachers and help with classroom management and using parental involvement with college activities. They may act as interpraters for students who are deaf or even for students who do not talk English fluently. Some might work as private tutors within student homes. Most schools need paraeducators to have at least a good associate´s degree. Teacher accreditation is not required for paraeducators.
