Enjoyment of working with students and adults.
School Clerk (Current Employee), Dallas, TXOctober 24, 2014
Typical day is filing papers, type documents, telephone calls messages, keep confidential documents under supervision, arrange and organize meetings, also give and receive information to students, parents and staff. I have learned better organizational skills and prioritizing documents or tasks given. Management is low, for the most part the principals – more... are busy with their own issues and have some time to come for a short visit. Co-workers are amazing to be with on a daily basis. I have about 3 students aids for each of the 7 different class periods. We are like a small family, I have 6 counselors, 2 principals, 2 teachers, and 1 college ready professional that I assist alone, Hardest part of my job would be sometimes the stress because we have to visit with students that are not only on a failing list but are also having problems at home with their personal life and just sometimes need someone to talk to and get away from all their troubles. Most enjoyable part of my job is being the control center the go-to person for any question or concern, being able to work with students and help them achieve a diploma. – less

Learning environment
Special Education Teacher's Assistant (Current Employee), Dallas, TXOctober 23, 2014
Pros: learning new material everyday, smiles on the kids faces, great parent feed back, helping people, student encouraging each other, positive student feedback
Cons: negative parent feedback, kids not remembering the lesson, no homework turned in, short lunches, students dropping out of school, students giving up, bad hygene of students; bullying
A typical day at work is hard to sum up, because it has its ups and down's throughout the day. I love my co-workers we work together as a team most of the time to come up with the best solution to service the kids. The hardest part of my job is having to discipline a student. The reason I say this is because, you have to be thorough in disciplining – more... a child, then turn right back around and get that student to participate in the classroom assignment. The MOST enjoyable part of my job is when that same student you had to reprimand comes up to and says "even tho I didn't like it at the time, I'm glad that you took the time out to show me that you care", this is the best feeling in the world! – less

Unhealthy Place
Central Staff (Current Employee), Dallas, TXSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: time off
Cons: culture
If you work on the campus it can be a great environment depending on the site. The kids are great! However, the Superintendent and his leadership sucks. Dishonest, a lot of politics and no true skills amongst leadership. Some of those people could never receive a job else where in the capacities they are currently in.

Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Dallas, TXSeptember 16, 2014
Pros: kudos from my students, with handed drawn pictures and poems
Cons: temporary positions
A typical day at work is signing in as a substitute teacher in varies school districts. I learned to be confident when I first step into kindergarten or the 12th grade classroom filled with students. I manage my time according to the regular teacher plan and followed what was prescribed for that day. The hardest part of the job was going through traffic. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was when the principle of a elementary school gave me kudos for handling her first grade class well and firm. – less

Teacher Assistant / Intern (Former Employee), Dallas, TXAugust 22, 2014
Pros: clear job duties, routine tasks
Cons: no breaks
I enjoyed my time as an intern. The job duties of supervising the kids during activities and helping with homework were very clear. I did the same thing pretty much everyday, with little exceptions, which I liked. The staff were also really nice and were able to help me if I needed it.

The kids could be a little rowdy, but that's to be expected. Overall, – more... they were really well behaved and sweet. – less

I made sure that the school was a safe place for the staff and kids. I made sure each employee under me met all the job requirements that was required by my Supervisor. The hardest part of the job for me was taking a break. I allowed my employees to break but I just have to keep moving until my job is done. The most enjoyable part was the finished product – more...

Keeping the school clean
Janitorial Worker (Former Employee), Dallas, TXAugust 1, 2014
Taking care of business for the teachers and students. I learned that kids do watch your actions when you are working at a school with a lot of children. A regular day was coming to work getting alone with people you work with.
