The power of teaching assistants!
Recognising the Contribution of TAs
National Teaching Assistants' Day was created by Teaching Personnel to recognise the valuable contribution Teaching Assistants make to the education and support of school children across the UK.
On National Teaching Assistants' Day we want schools across the UK to join in acknowledging the Teaching Assistant Lockdown heroes of 2020.
Yet that got me thinking, teaching assistants (TA's) have made a big impact on my ability to access education over the years. I know it is due to their support that I could attempt to compete with my peers. It was their patience that allowed me to complete tasks at my own pace.
I imagine TA's are often overlooked if you don't require their input to succeed, but I believe they deserve recognition.
Did you or your child have a teaching assistant at school? How did this impact your education? Is there one TA that stands out from the rest? Let us know in the comments below!
