About this learning opportunity

We know that as educational assistants, you go above and beyond, every day, in pursuit of supporting complex needs and impacting the lives of children, families and the learning community to which you belong. You are the vital connection many students need to be successful. This requires skill, dedication and patience beyond measure!

The challenges of supporting students and staff in an environment where teaching and learning needs are continually evolving is complex work.

This series is designed to provide staff who are currently in this complex role as well as EA's new to the role with an overview of educational best practices in support of students and teachers. Participants will also develop an understanding of the importance of a common language and consistency in educational practices across a school or district.
