I have seen a lot of teachers assistants who are very unprofessional. If you want to make a good interview then you should be ready to answer what makes a good assistant.

A good teacher’s assistant definitely:

1) Is ready to help the teacher set up instructional activities

2) Is always in the classroom when students are around unless the teacher specifically sends you to do a task (If you must get a pop or leave school, do it during lunch time or prep period).

3) Is able to keep records on students progress for the teacher, or check off student’s progress on specific tasks.

4) Is able to monitor a student’s behavior and assist the teacher in giving behavior reinforcement throughout the day.

5) Is able to understand the content that the students are learning, or is willing to study up so that students can ask questions. You don’t have to know EVERYTHING (that’s the teacher’s job), but you should at least know the basics.

6) Is able to cooperate with the teacher and other people in the school so that students receive the best instruction possible.

7) Likes students and enjoys working with them. Has previous experiences working with children (even if it’s just babysitting or volunteer work).

Seriously, if you can prove to the person hiring that you are able to do these things, then every teacher or principal will want you in their classroom. Good TAs are really hard to find. Just act professional and use common sense.
