When I worked as a first-grade teacher assistant, just about all I did was scut work. Photocopies, checking reading logs, taking kids to the bathroom and the playground, loading papers into take-home folders, etc. Virtually no teaching. It was boring, and it was virtually impossible to get any teaching experience. The other thing to think about is that a TA is "locked" into one classroom in one school. You don't get to meet anyone, see other schools, etc. I would sub. I'm learning way more as a sub than I did as a TA.
