Being a lab assistant, there were always different activities going on each day and therefore, the students were always using different tools and equipment. I definitely learned patience, and even learned how to use machines along with the students. Being able to interact with the student was the best part of the job because they are in a position that I had previously been in, so it's cool to be able to help them through it the way I had people helping me. I got to meet a lot of cool kids. I love the teacher that I work for because she and I are very close and my co-workers have really fun personalities.
