Try it...

I say try it out, as with anything YMMV.
I was an assistant for 10 years and loved it. I worked with some amazing teachers who respected me as a fellow educator. Yes, you will have duties, but I never minded those because it gave me another chance to interact with the kids. In our district, the aids are allowed to teach the class. Some days I would come in and the teacher would ask "do you want to teach (enter any subject here) today?" I loved it, my experience is what made me go back to school to become a teacher. I am friends with many of those teachers today.

Now, I know that many aids did not have the positive experience that I did. It is true that some are treated poorly, but it is not always the case. So I would try it, you might love it!
