Are you looking to teach special ed? In my district special education teachers are so hard to find that they pay paras to go to school and become teachers. If you are a decent para, have good attendance and get your license, you would get hired as a sped teacher.
If you are looking to teach regular ed, it will be a lot harder to switch from special ed para to regular ed teacher.
But even if you are in a high demand field, no job is guaranteed (nor should it be). I had a licensed teacher in my room last year working as a para. She had fits that the district did not hire her as a teacher. Problem was that she wasn't good at her para job. If you take the para position, make sure you shine.
