Teacher assistants play an integral role in the schools of Rhode Island. They provide instructional and other direct services to students under the supervision and direction of the classroom teacher or other certified professional staff. Teacher assistants are required to be trained before they are employed and to engage in ongoing professional development during employment so they can support school improvement and student achievement goals.
RIDE is pleased to sponsor the 2016 Fall Teacher Assistant Conference on Oct. 1 at Lincoln Middle School. This conference is specifically designed to meet the needs of teacher assistants and to provide strategies they can use with their students throughout the year.
This training class is required for most people interested in working as a Teacher Assistant in RI.
