playingmylifeaway asked: Hi dear :) I was wondering if you know anything about teacher assistants (TA) and what qualifications are? I'm a sophomore P-4 Education Major and didn't know when I could apply. I take the first part of the Praxis in March I think.
hi! I think some of this will depend on the state you are in, and the facility you are looking to TA in. For example, in PA in childcare or private schools, it’s quite likely that you can apply for a TA position or Assistant Group Supervisor positions with your HS Diploma and a copy of your transcripts. You would likely have to provide documentation for 2400 hours worth of direct care with children, and meet a minimum number of credit hours, but we often hire sophomores and juniors to be teachers in our classrooms where I am at. If you are looking into TA-ing in a School District, this might be a little more stringent and you’d have to look in to each as you go. It is possible that some of these jobs would require an associates or bachelors certificate.
