Still working here
Substitute Teacher/ Teacher Assistant (Current Employee), 75 Calhoun street charleston, scFebruary 18, 2015
I Sub in several different schools for Charleston County School . I've learned that each individual student has personnel differences between them no one child or student are the same their lively hood are very different and their ability to learn are not the same. Each classroom that I work in are set up different and the Staff treat you fairly. It depends on the location but overall everyone is very nice and helpful when needed.
Nothing is hard only if you make that way. Seeing the smiles on the children face when they see you again in another class and greeting you with a hug, that's the great reward of all.

Temporary employment
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Charleston, SCNovember 18, 2014
Pros: meeting the children
Cons: they did not have a benefit package
The job of a substitute teacher was to attend to the class because the regular teacher was out. Sometimes you were just babysitting other times you were actually teaching the students.
I learned that sometimes students want a teacher they can rely on and teach them, not teach at them.
The principle was very helpful in making sure the students respected their substitute teacher at any cost.
The other teachers were very helpful.
The hardest part was leaving the children that I bonded with at this one particular school.
The most enjoyable part was meeting the students and bonding with them.

Challenging workplace
Teacher (Former Employee), Charleston, SCFebruary 1, 2014
Pros: technology opportunities
Cons: difficult environment for me
The school I was assigned has high risk, low socio-economic students which come with its own unique environment. The hardest part of the job was adjusting my teaching style to different environment with special needs. This school was challenging anything I've been exposed to prior. Management was good, staff was accepting and I learned many techniques from veteran teachers. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the students in extracurricular activities because that was where they felt more successful.

Challenging...
Lead Teacher of Pre-Kindergarten (Former Employee), Charleston, SCJanuary 24, 2014
Charleston County Schools have average benefits; however, tend to take more monies out for retirement than they match and that salaries are able to accommodate.

Teaching children is a passion and love that an individual must have to be in this profession. The co-workers were difficult to work with, provided an environment of hostility and team work was non-existent. That was the hardest part of my job. The most enjoyable was teaching.
