Pros: saving lives and making a difference
Cons: when they are not with you, what happens... not having total control
A typical work day consist of touching lives of At-Risk Students who come from all corners of life. I see happy faces, hungry faces, sad faces, confused faces, but most importantly I see faces reaching out for help and I am their to reach out and assist where needed. I have learned that it does not matter where you come from in life, it doesnt matter what you have, the little things are the things that mean the most in life when you have never heard I love you or I care about what happens to you. I have not only had the opportunity to work with he students, but I have worked in the capacity as team lead and Coach trainer where I planned our monthly inservices and meetings. I planned quarterly motivational staff meetings to keep up the moral in our work place. Our staff has an environment that is very family oriented. We have an outstanding team that work together and assist each other. Through our suggestion box, if we have any concerns or complaints, we place in there and discuss at our quarterly pep meetings. The hardest part of my job is not being able to save all the kids I work with each day. I go home sometimes and wish I could come up with a solution to try some other avenue that could help the kids to make changes that are positive to saving them from destruction. The most enjoyable part of my job is the Passion and love I have for making a difference in the lives of these At-Risk kids. Noting gives me more pleasure than to give my all to them knowing I make a difference in their lives inspite of what they go through.
