There is a school assistant and an inclusion assistant at our school.
My name is Maria Geißler. I have an M.A. in Education/Humanities and have been working at Hans Christian Andersen School as a school assistant since August 2020.
The school assistance program was adopted by the Saxon state government as a “sustainable assurance of educational quality” in the Free State of Saxony.
School assistants support teachers in teaching, educating, advising, mentoring and supporting students and relieve them of extracurricular activities.
The duties of a school assistant include, in particular:
- Participation in the implementation of the educational mission of the school
- Contact person for students on site
- Participation in consultations with teachers, school management, parents, external partners and other relevant support networks
- Support for teachers in all pedagogical projects
- In-depth and remedial courses outside or in addition to the timetable, but no teaching of lessons
- Homework supervision
- Conduct individual and group instructional activities, such as Support classes, all-day programs (GTAs), and individual support
- Supervision of classes throughout the day as well as on class and day trips, supervision of student body during breaks.
- Organizational tasks, such as e.g. documenting educational activities, preparing protocols, assisting with project planning, and more.
Other tasks are optional and can be expanded or modified as needed at the school.
I look forward to a good cooperation with you.
My name is Marlene Rietschel. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Pedagogy and have been working as an Inclusion Assistant here at Hans Christian Andersen School since April 2022. As an inclusion assistant, I support teachers and students in the classroom and in extracurricular activities. This is an additional, individually oriented support for students with special educational needs (or to avoid this), always taking into account the current level of development.
- Supporting the teacher in social learning in the class group
- Targeted support of students in the classroom in cooperation with the teacher (support measures, e.g. supervision of group work, support of support units in the context of individual work, support in mastering tasks in class).
- Recording and logging of individual developmental levels of students by observing them in class and comparing these results with the teacher in order to jointly identify individual developmental opportunities.
- extracurricular support for class trips and other activities
- Contributions to development and promotion plans
- Participation in counseling sessions
