Teaching Assistant

A teaching assistant is an individual who is certified to work along side a teacher in a class room setting. A teaching assistant is typically an adult who is certified by the state, but in some instances a teaching assistant could be a fellow class mate. Teaching assistants are needed in classrooms at all grade levels and work in private and public schools, child care centers and for religious organizations. Most teaching assistants will not have to work summers

Teaching assistants typically help the main teacher in situations where the students may have learning or physical disabilities. Teaching assistants are not required to hold degrees in education at any level. In this setting teaching assistants provide additional attention and instruction to students.

According to the bureau of labor statistics in 2012 the median pay for individuals working as teaching assistants was $24k/year. The job outlook for teaching assistants is projected to grow by 9% over the next 10 years or as fast as average.

Education Major unemployment rate

_EducationAll Majors
Unemployed%9%8
Minimum Wage%4%4
All Others%86%87
More: Unemployment for all Majors *** not counting stay at home parents *** not counting those currently in grad school

Are things going well in Education?

Going Well%87
Not Going Well%13
More: All Majors Satisfaction ??? This is a social "life satisfaction" question. Overall, would people who graduated with a degree in Education say that their life is going well? It could be interpreted in terms of stress, salary, long hours, future prospects, etc. *** not counting those currently in grad school

Graduates who stayed in Education

Still in Field%71
Got out%29
More: All Majors Still in field ??? A high "got out" percentage can be interpreted a couple of ways -- for instance, perhaps the major is a great stepping stone to becoming a totally different career -- like a doctor. Or perhaps the jobs one gets with the major just aren't that great. *** not counting those currently in grad school
