    I have been subbing in special ed quite a bit at this one school. Sometimes I am the teacher, and sometimes I am the para. The K-2 autism class is really my favorite, I like the teacher, the other paras and the kids.

    One of the paras took another job so they asked me if I was interested in that position. In my county, it is a good idea to take a para position so you can get your foot in the door. I have heard this from several people.

    I am certified ECE K-5 in Georgia. Does anyone have any tips or advice for me since this is my first interview for any job in education.
    (other than subbing) I am very nervous but excited at the same time because I think this is a good fit for me.

    Be yourself and let them know that you are dedicated, organized and flexible. Answer questions honestly and if you don't know an answer, don't worry. Just explain, that while you may not know the answer at that moment that as a staff member that you will ask questions and find the answers to new questions because your number one concern is the child.

    I got the job! The special ed teacher had requested me since I had subbed frequently in her classroom. The P knows that I want my own classroom but this is a good start. The AP said he started out as a parapro also. So I start tomorrow, can't wait!
