Assistant Teacher, Windy Hill (Current Employee) – New London, NH – April 13, 2017
When arriving at work I am greeted by the children and start the routine of snacks, meeting and play. trying to get the kids to cooperate and understand is one of the hardest parts. The environment of work can be on edge sometimes with some disagreement of all the co workers. Being able to work with people that I can relate to and understand is one reason why I love working there as well as the warm hugs from the children.
Educational atmosphere is very rewarding working with students and faculty members.

Colby-Sawyer was a very rewarding and pleasant to work. The constant change in tasks due to numerous faculty members I worked with was challenging but rewarding and educational. This position taught me to multi-task and find different ways to handle the different preferences of each faculty member. It also taught me to manage my time, prioritize, and work with vendors.
Work at my pace while prioritizing

Ware Late Night Manager (Current Employee) – New London, NH – February 3, 2016
I worked the night shift at the mail room and it was a great job. Mostly free time since not many people come after 4:00pm. My job consisted of retrieving people's packages, or renting out the equipment for the game room. Other than that, there were the rare occasions when I helped people open their mail box or answered some basic mail room questions for them.
