I am a student studying for a B.A in Elementary and Special Education. I'd like to get a parapro job, as I'm doing my degree online. The only problem is, I have no experience being a parapro. I taught ESL in Mexico for 4 months and I was an English Language assistant in two French middle schools for nine months, but no experience in a US classroom. In my state, you can exempt the para pro exam with 60 college credits, which I have, thus making me eligible for the certificate. I've just started my major-specific classes of my degree, so I'm not sure how much being an education major would help at this point.
