Special Educator, Retired (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – September 25, 2013
CCPS was an excellent opportunity to work with dysfunctional young people mainly males. Having also worked in their ICU unit, I gained knowledge of students with Oppositional Defiance Disrder (ODD). After I retired, I kept in touch with a few of the students who did have respect for me. Being the type of educator I am, I extended myself in hope that the students would stray from being so angry and defiant with authority figures. Sadly, the three students I took under my wing ended up in prison.
professional development that encouraged me to have hope for the students with odd.
the structure, focus on making a difference, external support from the community, and an alternative program i would call a failure, little teamwork, hardly any collaboration, and addministrative support that would engender an atmosphere that support change.

The culture in the Clayton county educational system with fellow educators was one of the best in my career.

Maintenance Apprentice (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – June 26, 2015
A typical day was to complete daily work orders, repair various types of equipment. The work environment had changed; the family of one atmosphere evaporated, thus causing many to leave, some retired, while others would leave to move on to new adventures. During my tenure I acquired new technical skills. I enjoyed the stability of the job; but the loss wages due to the economy was never recovered.
Work schedule: M-F, Vacation, other school system breaks

a typical day at work might include checking attendance, following up with parents regarding attendance issues, making home visits for residential verification, scheduling interviews for initial IEP assessments or renewals, attending truancy court, and documentation. I learned a lot about the collaboration of school, community, and family in the well-being of children in the education system. My co-workers were helpful and efficient. The hardest part of the job was trying to meet the various needs of the client within the limitations of the system's policies and procedures. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing results.

8:00-8:30 1. Review my to-do list from yesterday 2. Re-prioritize my list for today The list has • Must do today • Should do today • I hope I have time for this 3. Sort through my e-mail • Delete worthless messages • Answer emails • Sort out those that require more time or extra work to answer – move them to my to-do list.
8:30-10:30 Since this is my most productive time of day I try to tackle my most demanding project. This is when I would write important letters, work on a report for the school board, update or refine a data sheet.
11:00 Great time for meetings. This is a nice to take a break from desk work and it has a definite end time (lunch)
12:00 Lunch (Away from my desk, because I need to refresh and rejuvenate)
1:00 Return phone calls, respond to emails, work on to-do list
2:30-4:00 Do data entry, send or pay bills, prepare mailings, things that are more routine and don’t require as much energy. This is a good time to get routine jobs complete.
4:00-5:00 Burst of final effort to complete my to-do list. Sort out things that can be moved to tomorrow’s list. This time of day is my best ‘sorting’ time – complete short, easy projects, request information from others for my projects, clean off my desk, etc.
The ability to have an impact in so many areas, Openness to new ideas, Adaptation to situations.
The job can run into your personal time and it is hard to get a salary that will compensate that
