My years of study were very intense and also wonderful
Priest Intern (Former Employee), Mundelein, ILJune 5, 2014
I had the privilege that very few people are given. A privilege whose purpose was to spend a good number of years discerning and reflecting on life. I am grateful for the opportunity I was given to study and learn and travel and be introduced to so many good people. In turn it has help to form me into the man I am today; educated, well balanced and – more... happy. – less

It is a joy to work in this system. The school administrator needs to be a vibrant, intelligent, self-motivated individual who works for the benefit of all the parish entities.

A strong commitment to the Catholic school is needed.

Work Study
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 3, 2013
Pros: christmas parties and having a 2 weeks off for the christmas holiday
Cons: compensation/benefits
My typical day at work was assisting other administrative assistants with assignments, answering multiple phone lines, ordering office supplies, setting up training class attendees, collecting payments and updating spreadsheets for catholic schools in all districts. I learned how to transfer Excel files to CD disks. Management was ok, but had no regard – more... to time. Most of my co-workers were a pleasure to work with. The hardest part of my job was the hours. I am a workaholic and therefore dedicated to completing projects. I was constantly given complex projects at the last minute whch management knew could not be completed within the allotted daily working hours. The most enjoyable part of my job was the completion of complex projects and the satisfaction of a job well done. – less

It was great to teach, and share my beliefs and values with our next generation of leaders.
Teacher (Former Employee), St. Vincent Ferrer School, River Forest, IllinoisAugust 22, 2012
Pros: working with kids, having the summer off.
Cons: low pay, extensive preparation time, no job security.
I have taught self-contained classrooms.
I have also taught core subjects(mathematics, science, social studies,...) to 5th-8th grade classes.
You learn to be over-prepared, and to be prepared for last minute schedule changes.
Administrators and fellow teachers usually work well with each other
and share common goals.
With the exception of the administrator – more... in my final year, they have actively promoted professional development.
The hardest part is adapting your lessons and teaching strategies to different learning abilities and different learning modalities (eg. kinestetic, auditory, visual,...)
The most enjoyable part is working with the kids, and sparking their creativity by using things that interest them. – less

Nice place to begin my career
First Grade Teacher (Former Employee), Chicago, ILJuly 9, 2012
Pros: wonderful teachers to work with
Cons: horrible salary
It was a great place to begin my career as a teacher, as a lifelong learner and someone who would reach many children on multiple levels. It was am amazing experience. I made new friends, learned from my mistakes, grew in professional life, as well in my personal life. The staff at Queen of the Universe were the best. They were always there for me, – more... especially when my father passed away. I will never forget those wonderful teachers. The hardest part of my job was saying good-bye after 5 years teaching in a Catholic school. I needed to move on financially- couldn't make it on that salary as a single woman. The most enjoyable part of my job were the children that I still remember today after all those years. They helped my become the teacher I am today. They gave me the respect I needed to be able to reach kids not only educational but as the future generation of our world. – less
