Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Decatur, AR – January 17, 2016
Run reports from data base to reflect students grades and progress.
Worked with students who had difficulties functioning in a normal classroom. Students worked at their own pace in all subject areas on a computer based program. I had to be able to assist and tutor the students in order for them to complete courses on a timely basis. I mentored the students in all areas of their school experience.
I learned students don't all want to learn and it is extremely difficult to get the student to see their full potential. No matter how much you want their success you cant always get them to see it in themselves.
Most coworkers cooperated to achieve student success. However, some coworkers seemed to have a not care attitude. Which was extremely frustrating to me, because I wanted to see all students succeed.
The hardest part of my job was the fact that these students had multiple social, academic, and aggressive tendencies problems. It was hard to handle the emotional frustrations the students encountered.
The most enjoyable part was when a student that had been struggling with a problem finally understood and completed the coursework.
You had to be on guard of the aggressive behaviors of the students
