During the lesson the teaching assistant should assist and be a role model for the children and throughout the lesson the teaching assistant should do what the teacher asks and requires.
My role as a teaching assistant is to take on tasks such as preparing the classroom for lessons and clearing up afterwards, which allow the teacher to concentrate on teaching. To support pupils with particular individual needs, sometimes my role is to work one to one, while others work in small groups or work with one of these groups. The teacher is not able to give every pupil individual attention, assistants provide essential support to the pupils and the lead teacher. My responsibilities also include:
What does a Teaching Assistant (TA) do? there are many variations to this role making this not a straight forward question to answer. There are class teaching assistants, Special Educational Needs (SEN) teaching assistants, specialist subject teaching assistants, Higher Level teaching assistants (HLTA’s) to name a few. The job role will differ from school to school as TA’s are present in schools from Early Years classrooms through to senior and upper schools, making the role of a TA an extremely diverse and varied one.
Teaching Assistants or Learning Support Assistants – They complement the role of the Class Teacher and support learning for all pupils
My own role and responsibilities as an assistant is to work under the instruction and guidance of the teaching and senior staff. Usually within the classroom with the class teacher, supporting learning for the pupils and providing general support to the teacher in the management of the pupils and the classroom.
One of the key responsibilities of a Teaching Assistant or TA is to support and guide children while they are going through the different stages of their development.
Teaching assistants will provide assistance to both children and staff, ensuring the resources are ready for the activities planned for the day. They can also offer extra assistance to children with their understanding of a topic whilst the teacher concentrates on the rest of the class, so ensuring that everyone can carry on with their
One thing that I have learned in researching nursing delegation is that it is the responsibility of the registered nurse to assure that personnel are properly trained and fully understand the tasks in which they are being assigned. Research by Jones (1996) supports “A clear definition of the work to be done will reduce the chances of confusion and ensure that there is no doubt about who is responsible for specific jobs.” I assumed that a nursing manager or supervisor would be responsible for ensuring an unlicensed assistive personnel be properly trained, and though this is true, it is important for all registered nurses to assure proper training has been achieved for the safety of the patients. Better patient care will be delivered if the delegated tasks are performed safely and correctly. In addition, it is important to know what can and cannot be delegated based on an individual’s job description. Standing and Anthony (2008) found “Nurses are clearly accountable and responsible for errors of planning, for example, delegating to UAP an activity that

Something I have learned during my short seventeen years of life is the importance of embracing the differences in talent and ability of those among us. The fact that not everyone will be adept at everything is incontestable, and therein lies a great opportunity to help one another. If only Michael Phelps could help me with swimming, or Mariah Carey could help me with singing. I believe that for me, the Writing Center could give me a chance to help out, even if it doesn’t help anyone earn Olympic Gold or Grammies. As a community, I have found that North Shore High School has been exemplary at providing services for those who need a helping hand. Peer Leaders, National Honor Society Tutoring, and of course the Writing Center, are just a few
Without having a clear job description, it is hard not only for the paraprofessionals, but also the special education teacher, to find the right balance of what they can legally do with a student. Without these clear guidelines, it is extremely hard for either the paraprofessional or the special education teacher to figure out what they can do in the classroom, which can cause some ethical issues in that classroom. Since there are no strict rules and regulations for the paraprofessionals, then they could start to take matters of the classroom into their own hands, without the consent of the special education teacher, who is supposed to essentially be the boss over the paraprofessionals. Without this consent, the paraprofessional could accidentally

Last week Thursday on the orthopedic clinic was a slow but eye opening experience. When I got to the clinic at 8AM, after I was introduced to some of the nurses there, I was immediately assigned to a Medical Assistant (MA) that I had shadow for half of the day. The MA shows me around the clinical and explained her role and responsibility in the clinic setting. During the first several hours, and MA and I were quite busy rooming the patient. Because the MA want me to see how to do thoroughly assessment on a new patient, the MA did a thoroughly assessment and examinations on the first patient we saw. During the assessment, the MA also explained some of the medical procedures to the patient. She did a set of vitals on the patient, particular on new patient, such as blood pressure, height, and weight. We had a total of 15 patients during the morning.

I love this article and I think it brings up some good points. I love how the author Deb Leach, starts out by saying "I may upset a few parents with this post, but just know that I what I am about to say is in the best interest of your children". I agree with the author one of the worst things you can do is to assign a non-certified staff person to a shadow a child. Although, I have never worked in the school system as a paraprofessional my son had a professional in elementary school and he hated it. Everyday hew came home he complained about the paraprofessional that was assigned to him. I found out years later that she had no prior experience working with children with special needs. I was very hurtful to find out this several years later.
