Teaching Assistant Jobs

Teaching Assistant Overview

Teaching Assistant perform many of the same roles that teachers do, but they work under supervision to help the teacher perform his or her duties. Teaching Assistants may help plan lessons, teach lessons or work with students one-on-one or in small groups. Assistants often sit with students help them during lessons and work time. They may help create or copy instructional materials, grade students' work and complete many behind-the-scenes tasks so that teachers can focus on teaching. Depending on the age of the students, the Teaching Assistant may help out with field trips, playground duty and attendance.

Teaching Assistant Education Requirements

The amount of education Teaching Assistants require varies based on the school district, the grade level they will be assisting and their particular state and school district's requirements. Applicants generally need at least a high school diploma though some schools may require an associate degree. Teaching Assistants may be required to have a background check done and become CPR certified to work in a school setting. In areas where there is a lot of job competition, Teaching Assistants can increase their chances of getting hired by completing additional years of higher education, by gaining work experience in a related field and by earning additional certifications or skills.

Teaching Assistant Job Market

The job outlook for Teaching Assistants is expected to grow 9 percent by 2022, which is close to average for all occupations. While many schools are experiencing budget cuts, a good deal of them are responding by hiring fewer teachers and hiring more Teaching Assistants to help fill the gap. Similar positions include Pre-School Teacher Assistant jobs.

Teaching Assistant Salary

Teaching Assistants generally make around $23,640 a year on average. This amount will vary depending on the years of service the Teaching Assistant has worked, the school district they work in and the number of qualifications, certifications and special skills the Assistant has earned. Teaching Assistants may work either part time or full time.
