Pros: i enjoy helping our youth, education, childcare, clothing, etc.the most important thing is i don't expect anything in return from students just success.
Cons: cannot change everybody.
A typical day for me is checking students in through the metal detector. From there the tone of the day is set,everything is written on their face, happy, sad, cold,etc.. We often deal with "why" we can not have food near computers.
I've learned to deal with situations as they occur, tomorrow might be too late. My co-workers band together to help each – more... other and students. We do not show.discard in front of the students. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing I gave it my best in helping somebody, if nothing else seeing students enter the building with a smile. – less
