As a teacher aide you have a tricky role in schools. You are required to assist but not replace the teacher. You are required to support students in their learning without taking over the teacher’s role.
And yet you have to develop many of the skills and knowledge that teachers have such as:
- Behaviour management
- Precision teaching skills
- Curriculum awareness
- Time management skills
- Interpersonal skills
These handbooks will assist you to address all of these things and more. The resources will build your confidence and skills. They will become your first reference point when you need help.
Book B – Doing the Job provides more specific help for getting on with the work. Information is provided on behaviour management strategies and tackling the main curriculum areas with struggling learners. Because teacher aides usually have numerous and complex duties which require good time management, guidance is offered in this area. There are also guidelines on working with students with specific disabilities.
