English Educator (Current Employee) – Saint Johnsbury, VT – February 8, 2015
Every class is different even though the subject matter is the same. I have learned a great deal from my students about effectively delivering instruction. The management team is excellent and always willing to listen when there is a problem or issue. The co-workers are all very professional and willing to bounce ideas off each other. The hardest part of my job is not being able to retain all students. The most enjoyable aspect is when students move onto earning their degrees and attend four year colleges.
Support with technology and ways to increase retention
Adjunct Faculty Professor (Current Employee) – Bennington, VT – July 7, 2014
My hiring coordinator in the math department is outstanding and I have never worked under anyone as helpful in terms of carrying out my job obligations. Helped bring my own level of professionalism to a higher plane.
I was a work study and learned all the administrative duties. answering phones, filing, helping students, copying faxing,and other duties given to me by the manager. I enjoyed doing this type of work because it was fast paced and I learned many things
Receptionist (Former Employee) – White River Junction, VT – March 21, 2013
A typical day was being to work by 8:30am, answering phones, scheduling appointments, helping staff and students, cleaning, organizing paperwork, making copies, etc., and at 5:00pm I would leave. I performed receptionist duties, but my technical job title was Workstudy Student. I learned a lot while working here. I learned that this type of work is more what I'm looking for in future jobs, and also that I really do enjoy helping people. It makes me happy. Management was good. If I didn't understand something, one of my superiors usually always had the answer. My co-workers were great! I loved them like family and miss working with them dearly. The hardest part of the job was having pay and hour restrictions. Unfortunately those two things are standard for Workstudy Students. The most enjoyable part was working where I went to school. I loved helping my fellow classmates with anything they needed, and grew to really adore some of the teachers as well.
Adjunct Instructor (Current Employee) – Saint Albans, VT – February 8, 2013
Excellent school very supportive and accomodative of staff and students.
Our student body is diverse in every category. We pride ourselves on remediating, creating, empowering and launching students into careers and further education. I enjoy my students and they help to keep me young and involved in life.
I enjoy the challenges of the position, and I particularly enjoy seeing young people relaize, not only their academic potential, but their personal potential as people.
It disturbs me greatly to see a young person fail to recognize his or her potential, because life can be very unforgiving.
