Pros: fun environment, interesting students, enjoyable staff
Cons: part-time position
A typical day of work is rare. Days always consisted of various jobs and tasks, usually different than the prior days. I learned how to create purchase orders, administer tests to international students, general administrative work, and gained more managerial experience. My co-workers were the faculty of the ELI program. They were great and loved teaching international students English. I had a great supervisor that showed me a lot of ways to be successful in our program. The hardest part of my job was teaching students as a substitute teacher. I have never taught a class before but it developed my speaking skills and challenged me. I enjoyed getting to know international students and their various cultures the most.
