Teaching assistants are importantPosted Tuesday, February 8, 2011, at 3:28 PM
Good teaching assistants are worth their weight in GOLD.
The current price of gold per ounce is $1361.75. Based on my calculations using an average weight of 150, my former assistants had a value of $20,426.25 each.
To me, they were priceless. TA's do everything. They nurture, mentor, teach, nurse, parent, and perform endless office duties and paper work. A full day for any employee, but they also make time to liberally spread hugs and hope to the students.
The assistants at the Linton-Stockton Elementary School are certified. The passing of an examination is required by all of them. Some have degrees, some don't. More importantly, they like kids and work well with them.
Assistants are the perfect combination of teacher, supportive friend, and caring parent. "They are the sunshine in our lives."
