Ever heard the phrase ‘Behind every good teacher there is a great ­teaching assistant’? Sound about right? Well, without a doubt the support a brilliant teaching assistant (TA) could give can be endless, and if the partnership between a teacher and a TA is strong, then the result can only be an amazing educational experience for all. You see great partnerships all over the place such as, Johnny and Baby from Dirty Dancing, or Torvill and Dean, Britsh ice dancers and former Olympic and World champions. When people work together and complement each other, sparks fly.
