Pros: Sharing field information with service providers and co-workers, observing students improving at their own pace.
Cons: High case load, difficulties to coordinate meetings with services providers that work in different buildings.
Answering phone calls from parents, re-arrange PPT meetings according to parents, guardians or PPT members.
I learned to alter accommodations and modifications of students according to daily/individual academic and emotional needs.
I learned to accommodate myself to different personalities and demands of co-workers, parents chanting PPT schedules, calling with concerns.
The hardest part of the job is the size of my caseload. The year school year begins with twenty and ends up with forty five.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to be able to spend time one on one with students, get to know their preferences and see them motivated to work, especially when they celebrate their accompishements.
