Youth Treatment Counselor/Case Manager, Denver, CO - August 23, 2016
My typical day at work was working in a classroom managing behaviors, as well as offering one-to-one educational support. I learned the importance of strong teamwork and what can happen when the teamwork aspect is weak. I had solid management initially, but as the environment became more unstable, that management stepped down and new hires were brought in. The co-workers, were all hard-working, but there was a division between the staff, which caused unhealthy relationships. The hardest part of the job was the fear based work environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was to see the progression of the students behaviorally and academically.
