Solving Performance and Interpersonal Problems

WORKING WITH PARAPROFESSIONALS IN YOUR SCHOOL

Solving Performance and Interpersonal Problems

INTRODUCTION

In virtually any working relationship, problems will arise and cause tension among individuals. Sometimes problems develop because one or more team members are not meeting the performance expectations of the rest of the team. At other times, problems arise as a result of different interaction styles or opposing philosophies or ideas. Regardless of the source of the conflict, the team needs to have a strategy for addressing and trying to resolve the issue. The focus of this issue of NASET’s Working with Paraprofessionals in Your School is to provide such a framework for the classroom team. This is preceded, however, by a discussion of some of the most common issues that frequently contribute to conflicts between teachers (as supervisors) and paraprofessionals (as supervisees).
