I have been a fully-qualified teaching assistant for 21 years in the same school. This year I have worked with a group of children who need extra learning support. As their teacher said: "How much progress would these children have made without your input?"
I could say more but I have to plan lessons, write out music for the band, design a programme for our concert, mark numeracy tests and write reports.
