Teaching Assistant in HS - where does this get listed in apps/on resume and is it meaningful?
My D is a teaching assistant for a class at her high school. She gets credit for this and it appears on her schedule, but there is no grade for it. In her school, it is not easy to become a teaching assistant and few if any students do it (we have never met another), but I'm really not sure how meaningful this type of experience is when it comes to college apps (not sure if some schools have tons of kids doing this type of thing), and also, where one lists this type of experience (is it considering extracurricular?). She didn't really do this for college (she just has a strong interest in the subject and was asked to TA), but of course I'm wondering if it's considered meaningful when it comes to college apps, or no? Thanks for any input!28 replies
