Our History

Email our Historian, Candace Herring



Teacher assistants emerged in North Carolina during Governor Jim Hunt’s administration as part of the 1975 Primary Reading Program, designed to improve literacy among children in early elementary schools. Student achievement scores improved significantly after the introduction of the Primary Reading Program and teacher assistants to the classrooms.

A small group of teacher assistants began meeting in the early eighties for the purpose of enhancing and promoting their profession. The North Carolina Association of Teacher Assistants was founded. In April of 2017we celebrated our 35th Annual Conference! NCATA continues to evolve as our public schools evolve, making certain that our members are prepared to work successfully along side our students in our 21st Century schools!
