Able to work freely and productively. An environment that is pleasant, moderate to fast paced allowing for creativity. I have learned that working with diverse people takes an ability to compromise and express views easily and honestly. The hardest part of a job is working with no direction or goals. The most enjoyable part is the ability to help a customer confidently and to the best of my ability.
Ability to walk/excercise or just have down time during lunch.

Director (Former Employee) – Canton, OH – January 2, 2016
A great place to work as the adults show such love and affection for many of our less fortunate students. We has a safe haven environment where were able to provide our students with skills and material items they were unable to get at home. My job NEVER allowed for a typical day--not mentioned earlier, I was the first called in any and all emergency/traumatic situations and needed to pull the correct team together to deal with these situations(student shootings, student or staff sudden death...)
Secretary, Teacher's Assistant, Community Worker (Current Employee) – Canton, OH – September 16, 2015
Fast paced offices, classroom enchanting. Right now I am a substitute for the school system. I am a secretary one day and a teachers assistant the next. My co-workers are not always the same so... Management is very supportive, they also show love and compassion to the children.The hardest part about the job is moving around daily and accepting very minimal pay. I enjoy the fast paced office, keeping busy. The children are a handfull but, I enjoy them as well.
Educational facility with the pressures that are now being experienced by all educational establishments. Teachers whop care so much for their students, the one's who need it the most. I loved my students and my job but had to retire.
My day starts off by greeting students as they arrive at school each morning@7:30. We have a morning meeting starting with The Pledge and then dismissed to class around 8:10-8:15. I take attandence and lunch count for the teacher. Bathroom break @9:00, reading groups where I work with a small group. Recess is @ 10:55 where I stay with them until lunch at 11:20. I take lunch from 11:25-12:10. Small math groups then we have specials. Each day is different: gym, art or music. This is when I do copying or anything else the teacher may have for me. I clean/disinect tables and get snack ready, children usually return @ 1:30. I gather all information to send home and place in bookbags and my day concludes at 1:50(sometimes I stay a little over if we busy). My co-workers are fabulous and I love helping and being with the children. Some really need positive feelings we provide on a daily basis. Love the hugs and smiles I get daily. Wish I could be more than just a Kdg Asst to some. Would love it if I could be a school nurse.
SECRETARY II (Former Employee) – Canton, OH – July 8, 2014
Working for Canton City Schools was very fulfilling because it not only was an enjoyable job, it came with the benefits of many personal interactions with people who were caring and kind. A typical day included the rush of incoming students, on time and late, report generating, staff assistance, and helping students to the right people to help them. The hardest part of my job was the intense stress that came some days and was overwhelming. It was manageable but very draining. It was countered with the ability to serve others successfully and do my job well.
Great benefits--retirement and health, summers off with pay, discounted lunch and tickets for events.
Sub-Aide/Staff Support (Former Employee) – Canton, OH – May 22, 2014
learned various different skills with this company, such as remote support, google training, the mentor bay, how to fulfill a customers needs and wants. How to deescalate a angry customer call and much more.
Fun and always changing workplace and never a dull moment.
Substitute (Current Employee) – Canton, OH – March 3, 2013
Depending on where and what grade I'm subbing I'm always learning new fun things from day to day. The hardest part of the job I would say would be spreading your attention equally with all the children/young adults. The most enjoyable part will be, always meeting new faces and personality's at each school I attend.
