Hiring Teaching Assistants

Teaching assistants provide support to a lead teacher both in and out of the classroom. These professionals, also known as teacher’s aides, reinforce lessons by tutoring individuals or a small group of students. Their primary duties include supervising students, developing lesson plans, overseeing preparations, and documenting progress. Apart from helping students fulfill academic requirements, teaching assistants also help students with their social development needs. Usually, schools have their own entry requirements and decide on the qualifications and experience they require specifically for the position. The tasks and compensation differ based on these requirements. Teaching assistants draw an average base salary of $25,687 in the United States along with benefits such as 403(b), paid time off, and in some cases, professional development assistance. Some assistants go on to train as teachers. Working as an assistant can be an excellent place for an individual to begin a teaching career.

Responsibilities of a Teaching Assistant

Teaching assistants work across all academic levels from preschool to university, with duties assigned based on the candidate's academic background and prior training and experience. The role involves helping with academic and administrative tasks such as adapting and designing course plans and lectures, grading assignments and coursework, proctoring examinations, etc. They are also required to create a learning environment for the students, monitor engagement levels and provide recommendations on how to increase engagement, and identify and address behavioral problems and disciplinary issues. Teasing assistants also provide support outside of classes, such as help during exams, covering a teacher's absence, or attending school trips. 

Skills and Experience Required of a Teaching Assistant

Applicants should enjoy working with students and should be dedicated to building a safe and nurturing learning environment. To excel in this role, the teaching assistant should have in-depth knowledge of teaching methods and classroom activities and also demonstrate exceptional written and verbal communication skills. A high school diploma or equivalent qualification is a mandatory requirement for the applicants of teaching assistant roles in preschool and elementary schools. For those applying to graduate schools, a Bachelor's degree in the field of study is mandatory with preference given to Master's degree holders. The ideal hire should have outstanding interpersonal and presentation abilities, along with a positive attitude. They should exhibit an aptitude for learning, possess sound judgment, and have the ability to lead group discussions. The candidate should be caring, patient, and understanding of the unique needs of each student. Seek a candidate who is excited to be part of that experience and committed to building brighter futures.
