What is a Teacher Assistant?
Education & Degree Path
For example, teacher assistants who work in Title I schools—those with a large proportion of students from low-income households—must have some college training or proven academic skills. As of 2006, assistants at these schools have been required to hold an associate (two-year) or higher degree, have a minimum of two years of college, or pass a rigorous state or local assessment.
