CREC is an educational organizaton that really focuses on students' education in all areas, in particular, adult education as well as K-12
ESLTeacher (Current Employee) –  Hartford, CTApril 24, 2015
A normal/typical class includes a welcoming, attendance call, students reviewing the lesson plan for the day, and reviewing the previous day's lesson. This gives me the opportunity to know what I need to re-focus or repeat, and ultimately drives the lesson plan for the next day/week. Management of the classroom setting is extremely important for the learning process, the necessity for quiet and attention and to demonstrate mutual respect between each student and the teacher. This creates a positive educational climate that lends itself to ascertaining the presented material so that the students grow and become knowledgeable. In the past, I have co-taught and it was a rewarding experience being able to share ideas and teaching methods with another teacher. The most difficult part of teaching is keeping the students engaged and making the classroom atmosphere conducive to learning. Of course, the most enjoyable part is witnessing the students' achievements and seeing their joy at graduation.
Pros
Meeting new students each semester and the feeling of accomplishment for both teacher and students.
Cons
Never enough time to cover all of the material in a semester.

A job that challenges you everyday
Associate Instructor (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTJuly 18, 2012
The management was great and most of the staff I worked with was unbelievable because they were just as hard working and dedicated to the students. The hardest part of the job was the unexpected behavioral challenges that came about with the students and having different opinions on how to best solve the issues among staff therefore consistency and communication were issues. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing these student reach new levels after trying for so long to do so. The feeling was so rewarding knowing you had some part in that.
