English Teacher (Current Employee), Haltom City, TX – September 18, 2013
Every single day is filled with its own unique challenges. There is plenty of room for both professional and personal growth, but the demands are quite time consuming. Teachers are no longer simply educators of certain content. Rather, we are secretaries, organizers, coordinators, nurses, police officers, and, sometimes, miracle workers. Overall, teaching – more... has been fulfilling, but I am compelled after 11 years to explore other aspects of my BS, which is in political science. – less
As a retired Teacher I was allowed to work on a part-time bases. Returning to the classroom reinvigorated my desire.

Pros: family atmosphere
Cons: my schedule would not allow me to work after 11:00 am, this raised some problems in the duties i was allowed to perform.
Teaching students to be successful in taking the TAKS Science test was rewarding. I was employed under a grant for TAKS. the completion rate turned out to be 98%. My only regret was not being able to see the last 6 Seniors pass the test this summer.
Computer E.A. (Former Employee), North Richland Hills, TX – August 26, 2012
Pros: summers with my kids, getting to watch kids learn and create with technology
Cons: healthcare, pay
This was an amazing job, I was able to combine my love for computers and technology with my love for education and children. I became the Computer E.A. and after being hired and realizing the job description was a bit bland I asked my boss if I could actually TEACH technology to the students and not just watch them play games. She gave me full range – more... to commit to this new idea. I was able to teach the children the technical terms for the computer parts and different programs such as excel, word, powerpoint, how to search the internet and create simple web pages. I also took care of all the teachers computers and printers if they had problems. I took over the yearbook, 4th grade newspaper, and talent show. I jumped in with both feet and loved every second of this job! The only thing would be the insurance isn't great and the pay is low but being happy is better then being rich and miserable! – less
