My Bethel Experiance
Teachers Assistant, Family Partner (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – August 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.
