Hi all, I was wondering exactly what a student teacher is. I have heard the terms teachers aid, teachers assistant and student teacher. What is the difference? Are student teachers unpaid and do they work under a classroom teacher? I have seen teachers aide jobs listed as paid jobs (very low pay) under a paraprofessional title. But, I haven't seen any student teacher jobs listed. I'm just confused on the different job titles and roles. Can someone clear this up for me?
