Teaching assistant jobs look better in Ala.

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) - With teaching jobs hard to get in Alabama,
four-year college graduates are grabbing jobs as teaching
assistants.

Among them is Carson Clark, who's a teaching assistant at Dothan
High School despite a history teaching degree.

Aneta Walker, Cloverdale Elementary School principal, says
although the tight labor market is tough for new grads and
teachers, it has given school administrators a broader and more
talented field of candidates to choose from when hiring.

Walker says teaching assistant jobs usually attract applicants
with two-year degrees. Now people with four-year degrees are
applying for the jobs, which come with state health insurance, but
are lower paying than full-time teaching jobs.
