  • Minimum education requirement: Associate's Degree or equivalent;

The EC Pre-K Teacher Assistant is a paraprofessional who practices under the close, ongoing supervision of a certified teacher. The EC Pre-K Teacher Assistant is primarily responsible for the implementation of small group instruction as directed and planned for by the classroom teacher. These services include providing reinforcement of lessons presented by the assigned classroom teacher (in small group or 1:1 instruction) or supervising students during learning activities, cafeteria visits, and/or recess. In cases where an assistant is assigned to facilitate students in a lab or classroom setting where students are not receiving direct instruction from a face-to-face teacher, the primary function of the assistant is to supervise and support the completion of classwork assigned, problem-solve situations as they arise, and keep order.

The EC Pre-K Teacher Assistant does not design instruction or assessment plans but may be consulted by the classroom teacher for feedback to monitor student progress. It is the responsibility of the supervising classroom teacher to determine which tasks a teacher assistant may perform as a function of his or her training, experience, and competence.
