Teacher Aide Job Description

A teacher aide is an individual who helps a teacher do his or her job in the classroom.

A teacher aide performs a different role in the classroom than that of a teacher.

Teachers assist students in learning by teaching the curriculum, encouraging student participation, and monitoring student progress.

Teacher aides perform this same role, but under the supervision of the teacher.

Teacher aides often assist the teacher by grading and passing out papers, helping students, monitoring behavior, instructing students, and communicating with parents.

Teacher aides are not teachers, and they do not earn degrees that qualify them to teach.

Teachers have the responsibility to provide instruction, while teacher aides are responsible for assisting teachers
