We have a small number of TOSA positions in my district. From what I see, it honestly seems like they're using it as an excuse to give someone admin duties but pay them as a teacher rather than giving them the admin salary the position really should be earning. Perhaps it's not like that elsewhere. If I were you I'd ask your question to people who are already doing those jobs in your district to get more specifics about what it's like there.

Tosas in my district have had some predictable problems:


they must support horribly bad curriculum decisions and make pd presentations to inform teachers


they were subject to unpredictable budget situations where the job could disappear at the end of the year and then they got in line to compete for classroom spots. They had no guarantees of a spot anywhere and some end up subbing until a classroom opens up


tosas did not have a work area and carted around their things between schools

Has anyone had any experience in a position like this who would share pros and cons? We have some opening in our district as support people to the principal.
