Teacher's Aide (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYDecember 5, 2016
Bethel Head Start was a good place to learn and grow as a Teacher. Although you have to pay for benefits you were largely compensated throughout the year and at the end of the year for products for your classroom as well as gift cards for Christmas shopping. You would usually work with a team of three teachers in classroom of 18 to 30 children.
Pros
Strong teams that work together/ gift cards at end of year
Cons
dissension between supervisors and teachers family partners where the mediums

The best field trips and family activities
Family Partner - Case Management (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYJuly 16, 2016
A pleasure to work with the children and families. Home visits allowed you to see the interactions in their own comfort zone. In the classroom the children would engage in each play area and their socialization skills were all learning experiences.
Pros
Field triips were provided for parents as to give them a time of recreation away from their children
Cons
A pleaure to be a part of these activities remembering you are on the pay clock

Facilities Supervisor/Human Resource Assistance (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYFebruary 10, 2016
Bureaucracy interfered with program's mission and goals; therefore, children and families suffer. It became a big hindrance to employee morale.

My Bethel Experiance
Teachers Assistant, Family Partner (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYAugust 5, 2014
As a Teachers Assistant work with children anywhere from ages 2 1/2 to 4 yrs. of age. Teaching them their numbers, ABC's, seasons, how to write their name, how to be independent and any other important information that would get them ready for kindergarten. I learned how to be gentle, patient, and a team player. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the children watching them have a good time and learning. The hardest part of the job was dealing with people that didn't want to be team players but bosses when they weren't.

As a Family Partner I worked closely with the parents to enroll children into the program as well as any personal needs the parent may need for themselves or the family as a whole. Had to maintain personal records for the children in the program and gather health information like sight test, blood pressure and hearing test. I loved having my own space and being able to work in peace. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the constant changes to things that I have already taken the time to learn and on the spot information that wasn't in the system but needed the children after they left for the day.
