I think education requirements vary by state and districts. Some districts require a GED or high school diploma and others require an associates degree. Sometimes they will look at any experience you have in addition to education so include that on your resume if you have any. I would also inquire with someone from HR about the requirements needed for the position to better prepare yourself. Paraeducators help so much. I started as one myself prior to becoming a teacher, and it’s not an easy job! I learned so much during my time and had a great experience with the teachers and classes. Best of luck to you on your journey!
