Paraprofessional-Student Relationship

Bulling can exist anywhere whenever there is an imbalance of power, there is potential for abuse. Most Para's I've met have patience of a saint but after reading my para was supposed to Help me, instead, she Bullied me I went looking for some first-hand feed back. It maybe that we, a a society not look closely at either the kindnesses or the potential for Bullying because we might then need to consider our own abuse: paying para's little over minimum wage for their important, emotionally exhausting work.

I believe that I 'get your point', but please tell me that you're not a teacher in the Melrose school system!
