There are nearly half a million Education Support Professionals in the ranks of NEA's 3.2 million members. They are the school support staff working side-by-side with teachers and administrators to help students achieve their best. A major source of support professionals' work satisfaction is the personal fulfillment they get from working with students and serving their communities.

ESPs are educated, well-trained and experienced. ESPs have made significant personal accomplishments in education. Forty-two percent have an associate's or more advanced degree. Sixty-five percent have taken college courses. Forty-six percent take or have taken job-related classes. Forty-two percent have special certificates. Eighty-two percent plan to stay in the profession and sixty-seven percent plan to stay with their current jobs until they retire. With more than three-quarters of ESPs living within the school district in which they work, they are a proven asset to the community.

Here's what Lynn Witts has to say about her work as a high school paraeducator in the Polson, Montana.
