Classroom Assistants - Wages & Trends

nohourlynomonthly

Wages depend on duties performed. Those with teaching responsibilities earn higher wages.

Benefits may include health insurance and sick pay. Some school districts pay tuition and provide time away from the job to get more training. Some teacher aides are covered by a union contract. They may have a retirement plan and other benefits.

Because teacher aides usually work a ten-month year, their wages are reported annually.
