Para to Teacher Program
Welcome to our Para to Teacher Program!

The goal of the Para to Teacher Program is to provide an opportunity for paraprofessionals to maintain their paraprofessional position during the day while acquiring their elementary education teacher's licensure in the evenings. Rochester Public Schools and Winona State University have collaborated to develop this program for positions that fall under the paraprofessional category.
