Teaching Assistant Career
Teacher assistants provide extra supervision and support in the classroom setting, reinforcing the lesson plans and school policies while providing one-on-one or small group mentoring. They are an extra set of eyes, ears and hands to assist students through challenging lessons and help teachers with lesson preparation and evaluation.
Despite the fact that the average salary is about $25,000 a year, the opportunity to enrich children’s minds and help shape future generations is priceless. There are career opportunities for this position anywhere from childcare centers to public high schools, so you may even get summers off.
