Austin ISD Celebrates Teacher Assistant Appreciation Week

Austin ISD is proud to celebrate Teaching Assistant Appreciation Week, Nov. 17-21. In AISD, more than 900 teaching assistants serve students and teachers in elementary, middle and high schools throughout the district.

Teaching assistants may teach parts of a lesson, or teach a small group of students who need extra instruction. Many TAs work one-on-one with special needs students, shadowing their student and assisting with classwork, organization and behavior management. Teaching assistants often serve as an extra pair of eyes in the classroom, responding to students’ needs as they arise. 

Thank you to every teaching assistant who contributes to education through their dedicated service.
