Twenty-Eight also! It's been a weird and trippy road getting feedback from ACDs younger than me, but it's still awesome.

Be good and be more mature than your junior peers. Maturity should work in your favor and help you stand out. I was a fuckhead 21 year old junior and I’m sure you would have surpassed me

I love my job and have been doing it for years. My Principal is good to me as well! The problem is...the Paraprofessionals at my school are never recognized. You have Teachers Day, Secretaries Day, Principal's Day, etc. Paraprofessional Day comes and goes at my school every year with nothing mentioned to us. Paraprofessionals in my department (Sped) wear many hats on certain days and work extremely hard (mentally/physical)! Does anyone else get this treatment?

Do LORs need to be directly tied to your actual “work”? For context, I have super strong relationships from a Senior Manager on a business development initiative that we worked on for over six months and a supervisor on an initiative for 1.5 years. My issue is since most of my projects have been only 2-3 months at max, I didn’t have time to truly develop those relationships from a project standpoint.
