    I was a year long LTS instructional assistant this year, spending the 1st semester working with gen ed and sped preschoolers and the 2nd semester working with sped preschoolers. On applications where I am applying for assistant positions, is it ok to say that I have 1 year of experience as an IA or sped IA? Or do I need to be actually hired into a district before I can say that?

    Thanks!

    It definitely counts as experience.

    Some districts will count it and some won't. It should however definitely go on your resume.

    I'm not really sure what LTS is...is it student teaching? If so, definitely put it in experience. All you have to do is describe it, they'll understand. It's not like you're lying about being an IA. Good luck! :)

    LTS is Long Term Subbing. Which means that she filled in as an instructional assistant for a long period of time for typically a maternity leave.

    I don't know if it would be counted toward teaching experience, but it definitely counts as experience. I would put it down on the application under "other experience" and make sure it is also on your resume. For teaching experience, they usually mean actual certified positions or subbing for a certified teacher.
