Teaching assistants need to be vigilant, continually observing how they can support the teacher and students in the most useful ways. Using one’s initiative rather than waiting to be given instructions is highly rated by teachers because they can focus on teaching the class knowing their teaching assistant will independently adhere to classroom tasks. "Actions speak louder than words", therefore this trust and reliance develop over time.

Flexibility is another key attribute of an efficient teaching assistant. Adapting to meet the teacher’s unique needs each day will ensure lessons are carried out according to their plans and ensure pupils engage in productive learning experiences.

Managing behavior in the classroom is demanding for teachers, but when staff unites to employ the same level of discipline and behavior management strategies then students’ behavior is more likely to improve. Teaching assistants must use their authority appropriately and work in accordance with the classroom teacher to encourage good behavior in the classroom.

Teaching assistants should maintain a positive outlook and be willing to get involved with any task. Readiness to engage in messy or challenging activities and provide practical support, such as gathering resources, is highly valued by teachers.
