Teacher Assistants"Teacher assistants are remarkable individuals! They share not only their knowledge and love for students, but bring a nurturing spirit to the classroom that inspires learning every day. I hold a great respect and appreciation for the diverse responsibilities they assume to assist teachers, students, parents, and the school community! Thank you NCATA for supporting teacher assistants in North Carolina and ensuring that their work in the classroom continues to be instrumental in moving our schools to greater heights! NCATA Rocks!"
