A decent place to start a career in teaching.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Barstow, CA – October 18, 2013
A typical day would entail me arriving 30-60 min before school started. I would use this time to make copies for the student lessons, go over my lesson plans for the day, and other things to prepare to teach. I would teach my students a variety of lessons throughout the day, like Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Science and PE. I would maintain classroom control and exercise discipline whenever necessary.At the end of the day sometimes I would have parent conferences, staff meetings, meet with other co-workers, clean up the classroom, grade papers, record work, file papers, make phone calls to parents, and prepare for the lessons the next day. One of the hard parts of teaching is keeping control of the students in classroom while teaching and having to discipline them when they acted up. The administration was usually supportive. My co-workers were very supportive and helpful. We operated as a team as best we could. The part of my job I enjoyed the least was the many hours outside of work spent preparing lessons and grading work. The most enjoyable part of my job was the actual teaching and interacting with my students.
