    Last year I never had a list written out for my TA with her duties. I did, however, sit and discuss what her duties would be. She has actually left the school so I will have a different TA. She has been at the school for many years as a TA, but this will be her first year in my class. I am thinking of manking a list with her duties and going over that with her. I just think this will help me to remember all the things I want her to do (and make sure I relay them to her), as well as make it clear to her my expectations. Do you think this is a good idea?

    Excellent idea. Go for it. It will keep you both organized!

    So, I am making the list. I am also including classroom expectations and my classroom management policy so she understands that. I never did this with my last TA, but I think this will help her in the beginning so she has something to refer to.

    I think this is a good idea. What's on your list so far?

    I think it's great. I have teachers who write me a list of daily duties if they'll be busy and they want copies, bulletin boards, certain kids pulled, etc but not a general duties list and info sheet. It'd be nice, because I usually have to figure things out myself as I go.
