Teaching Assistant

Posted November 556, 2021 by admin & filed under Distance Learning Plus News.


How can one be an effective teaching assistant? Some might underestimate the role of a teaching assistant, but their function is essential in the classroom. They are responsible for helping teachers carry out the lesson plan and they need to make sure each and every student has the support they need for their lessons.

There are different types of teaching assistants Their roles vary depending on whether they are helping in a primary school classroom, secondary school, or if they specialize in helping children with learning disabilities. Learners have different levels and speeds of learning and one of the roles a teaching assistant provides is extra guidance or a helping hand for those who need more help and attention compared to other students who learn faster.

Being an effective teaching assistant means going the ‘extra mile’, beyond the remit on your job description. You should be dedicated to your role and love what you are doing in order to perform your job well. You need to be flexible and patient and should have a good working relationship not only with your students but more especially with the teacher as you will work together to maintain a safe, sound learning environment within the classroom.  Passion and energy are very important factors to being a great teaching assistant.

If you have these traits and you want to enter the fascinating world of children’s education, you can start by equipping yourself with core knowledge and training through online education.
