Does teacher aides make more then a Nursing assistant??
This will vary by state, I live in Florida and I was an aide before I became a teacher. We got the same health benefits and sick days and retirement benefits, etc. However, our pay was hourly vs. salary for teachers, and we didn't get ANY pay in the summer. So, you'd have to get another job during the summer months. Also, the teacher's lunch was paid technically, and our lunch was not. As an aide, I made like $11 an hour, working from 7:30-3 five days a week. As a teacher, I made almost triple that. It is a lot harder to be a teacher, but being an aide is a great place to start if you can make do with little pay. I would think a nursing assistant would make more, but you'd have to check with someone in that profession. For instructional support position pay, check your county web site, they usually post salary/pay schedules. Good luck!
Depending on the state, but for the most part teacher's aides do get some retirement benefits and health benefits. (Depends on hours worked and things like that.)
You can call a district you may be interested in and ask about paraprofessional benefits.
I can't speak for other states, but in Texas, all public school district employees are entitled to the same benefits. I have no idea how much money a nursing assistant makes, it probably depends on the facility you were working at.
In all honesty, though, you should choose your profession based on which you'd rather spend 40 hours a week of your life doing, whether it be education or health care or anything else.
Teacher aides make approximately half of what teachers do, in Texas that's maybe $15,000/year.
But if you're a full-time employee, you are entitlted to full-time benefits if it's a public school. How great they are depends on the school and district. But please don't be a teacher's aide if you're functionally retarded; you're supposed to be HELPING the teacher, not acting like her students.
In my school district it does not matter if you sweep the floor, work the cafeteria, answer the phone, teach children or assist the teacher...if you work 20 or more hours per week, you are entitled to full benefits (health, dental, vision, life, retirement).
To answer your questions, you must contact the human resources department for your school district as all localities are different.
