Why Teaching Assistants are Great

Lynn is a secondary teacher who has worked with a number of fantastic teaching assistants. Here are her reasons why teaching assistants are great:

  • They support in the classroom and help me
  • They are a good source of advice
  • They see the students from a different perspective
  • They see students in all subjects across the school
  • They can advise what works and what doesn't with students
  • Can warn you if a student is unwell etc or if a situation has blown up
  • They know the ropes - invaluable as a supply teacher!
  • Some adapt work for specific students with difficulties
  • They are undervalued and under appreciated!
