I teach an autistic class with 9 students and 6 paraprofessionals. I am 24 years old, and most of the paras are much older than me. One of them is very strict and stern with the students. In my head, I call her "Military Marie." She yells at the students and makes threats to them about calling their mom, which I have never done. She is very good when I give her a specific job to do (photocopy, clean up, and organize materials). Last year, she worked in a school with younger students with autism who had many behaviors, not that it makes it okay. However, I think she learned this way of teaching at that time, which suited her overbearing personality. I know that I am the teacher and I have to set her straight. I just want to be professioanl and efficient at doing so. Please help. Thanks!
