The job of a teaching assistant is entertaining and pleasurable. It is a profession which offers convenient working hours. Teaching assistants work together with teachers and help students make the best out of their learning. A teaching assistant will support students and assist a teacher in the classroom. They are also called classroom assistants. During the absence of a teacher a teaching assistant has the responsibility to supervise the class. The roles to be played by a teaching assistant are dependent on the age of the school children.

A teaching assistant working in a primary school with children from the age of three to eleven has to do tasks like helping students who require extra assistance to finish tasks, narrating stories to pupils, reading books to students, caring for students who are disturbed and upset, helping the class teacher supervise class, etc. Literacy, special education needs, numeracy, etc. are areas in which most teaching assistants specialize. Sometimes teaching assistants in secondary schools work as special needs assistants. In such cases, they will help the students take notes and carry books and bags. In order to attract skilled people from diverse backgrounds, many schools are willing to employ disabled individuals. A proper understanding of the difficulties encountered by the students can also be provided by disabled teaching assistants and they can help students lift their hopes and ambitions.

School support staff who need to develop their career and improve and augment their knowledge could try to become a higher-level teaching assistant. They have more responsibilities when compared to other teaching assistants and they support the development of young people.

Children in elementary schools should be given special care as it is an important stage in the character formation of the child. Instilling a positive attitude in them is necessary for their advancement.
