You get to know the school teacher's students. Working for an extended day you're the first and last person the students see throughout the day. You get to know your students on a personal level. You get to have fun with them every day and learn something new about yourself and them, The workplace is very diverse and every school site is different in their own way. One hard thing is keeping an accurate count of yall your students usually every school has 100-200 children in an extended day. I learned a lot of patience and leadership because the students look up to you as a certain role model they watch everything you to and copy it, so you'll have to be careful around them.

Small group instruction Learned better classroom management skills and task orientation with children management is fair and great leadership workplace is friendly welcoming and very warm towards everyone hardest part of the job is the high volumes of children ratio to adults

I had a wonderful experience working at Arlington Public Schools with my first manager. When we were given a new manager, this person was not flexible and favored employees she hired over those who had worked for the old manager.

By far one of the best jobs I have worked! Duties included being a teachers aide for grades 1st-5th. Great workers that really work as a team and very family oriented. Will defiantly recommend to anyone starting off in the educational field if you are not a teacher yet!

APS has provided me with opportunities to work in a number of different setting in schools, private schools, and meeting held at headquarters. The most enjoyable part of the job is enabling parents to access the resources available to them for their children's education.
In House Sub (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – April 18, 2017

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Arlington, WA – March 1, 2017
Mostly pleasant students and staff. I love the community, the kids, and most of the staff. Some school staffs are more cliquish and others are more inviting, but all of them are friendly.
Ultimately there were some politics that started to get to me because of a few people, but not for a very long time. Most of the staff I've met have been pretty great.
Perhaps normal for subbing, but I have been frustrated by the lack of feedback. Despite my request, about the only feedback you ever get is that you don't get called back certain places and no one ever tells you why.
Grounds Crew (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – February 1, 2017
This is an amazing job. Meet a lot of new people and work along side with a great group of guys. It's very physical job. From repairing walls, playgrounds, concrete etc. To moving furniture around and lifting boxes things of that nature. Learn a lot about different skills and tool usage.

Arlington County has high standards and it certainly lives up to them with their high tech tools for students and teachers to use, it makes learning easy. The students always feel well equipped with their smart boards or laptops that are provided from the school system. Way to go Arlington!
