Team Leader (Current Employee) – Glendora, CA – March 23, 2016
This job has taught me so much about being a team player. I hold a supervisor role at this job entitled "team leader" and everyone that I work with, I always make sure to put them first, for breaks, or anything they need, before myself. Nothing is personally hard about this job. I have a strong team and I couldn;t be more happy to be there leader by example.

Opened the pool and greeted the instructor. Helped the instructor in any way possible and then assisted in putting way pool equipment in designated shed. Management ensured that all staff and students were safe and promptly answered any questions or situations. Co-workers were very supportive and friendly. The hardest part of the job was ensuring all pool noodles were out of the drains. The most enjoyable part of the job was monitoring the students.

Instructor (Former Employee) – Social Science – April 26, 2015
A professional well experienced educator with real world and world wide insight has no chance to even have an interview at Citrus College. Publication is not an asset either in the political science or history realms. Getting an interview and employed is an insider situation. This is not special to Citrus but is California wide. The golden shine in California is dull now. Don't waste your time for an opportunity that just does not exist. Apply for a position anywhere but California where your credentials, talents, and interests will be appreciated.
Small size. Needy students.
Continual construction, no courtesy in management, no chance for employment.
Collaborative team of educators who enjoy teaching nursing!

Older Adult Instructor Part Time (Current Employee) – Glendora, California – August 7, 2012
A typical day at work : Drive to a Skilled nursing facility and teach older adults in varied level of disability subjects such as health science events, personal medication management, nurtrition for older adults, healthcare self advocacy and memory retention skills
I learned to design all my own curricula and syllabi, and create all my own learning tools. I manage my own time, monitor student advancement and all the paperwork associated with my class. I also register all students at the site, maintain all enrollment data and submit all data to administration. I participate twice a year in department meetings, and more often as curriculum needs dictate
I operate within the Activities Department at the facility where I teach, and see co- workers every day I teach at the facility. I interface with every department of the skilled nursing facility from nursing to housekeeping to adminsistration. I need the cooperation of of all regular staff in order to teach my classes and I have learned how to acheive that cooperation and create Ad Hoc teams in order to teach my classes effectivly
I also have co-workers at the college, my supervisor, clerical support staff, and of course the Dean of my department. I see these individuals on a semi weekly basis, and have enjoyed a smooth working relationship with them for nearly 20 years
The hardest part of my job is the State budget crisis! My department has been reduced dramatically, and I am in the process of restructuring my courses for an entirely different venue. I will no longer be able to teach in skilled nursing facilities. I lookmore... forward to the challenge of teaching completely new courses to a new student body, but will miss the facilityI have been working in as well as the students
The most enjoyable part of the job is designing curricula and actually teaching that which I have created, and seeing the benefits effects of that information to change the lives of my students for the better. I also enjoy meeting with and working with new staff, and creating a "Team" spirit with staff for the betterment of the students. I like feeling that I am part of the Skilled nursing home team, and will miss that relationship too.less
