What is this about?
I looked for a website for teaching assistants and I just couldn’t find one…so, this website, blog or online presence (whatever you’d like to call it) is for ‘The Teaching Assistant’ and those interested in becoming a Teaching Assistant.
So that is you reading this and me writing this.
I have worked in several schools and with many teachers over the last few years. It can be a great and rewarding job and currently I work with year 5 children. I have worked in years 2, 4, 5 and 6 over the years and each year brings its own challenges.
I have also spent time as Learning Support Assistant (LSA) which ha held me in good stead for the role as a Teaching Assistant.
This website is here for us, it will have resources, discussion and other things.
So there we are.
if you have any questions feel free email me.
I currently work in an outstanding school with my role spent between Year 5 Teaching Assistant and ICT Technician. I am married with two beautiful daughters.
