Great staff and students, exciting deaf community which is very expressive.
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee) – West Hartford, CT – January 22, 2016
American School for the Deaf is a joyful work environment and very expressive. The Deaf community is very present within the school. I have learned a greater fluency of sign language and ability to teach students and enjoy staff relations. The management is pleasant and supportive to staff and students. The co-workers are enjoyable. The hardest part of the job is dealing with a non-compliant student. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning, relating and enjoying both staff and students in a deaf educational environment.
It's a great environment for those who love math. I learn the value of keeping accuracy of all work as part of the goal to strive for. I also learn the importance of team work and collaborating with other individuals to make sure that all information are true and nothing is false. From working with my co-workers, it was fun because we deal with several different personality, yet we come together to meet ends with a great success. In fact, when we all work together as a team, the hardest part cease and us all working together makes life easier and enjoyable.
A good cultural setting for students who are deaf to build their communicational needs
Student Teacher (Intern) (Former Employee) – West Hartford, CT – April 11, 2013
The school provides for students from early childhood to high school. It is a great environment for the students to learn and build their language skills. However, the management is poor. I barely informed of the school events. My principal was absent during my internship without notice and she was supposed to supervise me. The most difficult part of the job was keeping up with the events of the school. The enjoyable part was just interacting with the students overall.
