Student Assistants

8th grade students are having the opportunity to be teacher assistants. This provides a good learning experience for students who want to pursue teaching, later on in their career. Teacher assistants help teachers with simple tasks and maybe help some students if they need help. 8th grade students really enjoy their time being a teacher assistant, sometimes they even get to help their favorite teachers from previous grades.

When I spoke to teacher assistants they said they enjoyed helping and felt that it was a fun experience not only for them but for the student in the class, providing a change in the environment and a relatable role model.
