Rosa, only the host of a meeting (most likely you) has the ability to actually start/stop/sort breakout rooms. You can always start students in pre-assigned breakout rooms, then bring them all back to the meeting, and do a random sort into the typical “sort X participants into Y rooms” for another round of different rooms, but there can only be one pre-assigned group.

If you’d like, you can designate your IA as host for a meeting (by clicking on their name in the participant list and making them host) and then they could designate you as co-host, so you can still do screen sharing and other host-esque functions throughout the majority of the meeting. That way, your IA would be the one that could do all the breakout room management.
