Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 25, 2016
Everyday was a different day never knew what was going to happen and that was one of the things I liked the most. Working with special needs children I learned that miracles can happen. Working with my coworkers they always had my back if a student was acting out that coworker would be there and help me out and vise/versa. I loved taking the children in the community and letting them feel like they belong
trips no weekends
having a different opinon from a different coworker
Ponce High School & José Emilio Lugo Teacher (Former Employee) – Ponce, P.R – July 8, 2014
A typical day working at the Department of Education is to teach chemistry to young juniors. I have learned through this to cultivate a love for education and continuing to work with different youth and their needs. I belonged to a dynamic team both administrative and labor courts. The limitations are the lack of resources. The most important of this work is to see how my students develop academically, socially well.
Subsitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – January 10, 2016
I really like working at the schools i worked at. The school staff was good to work with. Working with students and parents helps you manage your own life and look at things different. Many different life styles and back grounds. Also sometime you just need to be a shoulder to lean on for both the child and parent.
Teacher (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 4, 2014
A very stressful environment but the children are fun to be with daily. I like how the children made new discoveries in learning a new math skill and they learned to work in groups. I learned that time management was essential for the schedule to flow properly and to be consistent. My co-workers were fabulous we held each other up and if needed lent a shoulder to cry on because the administration in the school was vicious and demanding to say the least. The hardest part of my job was to tell parents that their little angels were not angels and to give them structure at home if they want them to be successful in school. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the children become alert and eager to learn.
Assistant Cook (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 30, 2015
I work in a kitchen, I serve kids in mid- day/ afternoon, during the slow part of the day is when different grades come to eat in the cafeteria. Everything can be normal on a daily basics as well as hectic. When that happen, I have to keep a close eye on everything that goes on in the kitchen and the kids and staffs needs, like refill stream tables with food, bring the water jet right out into the cafeteria, complete the cook book, and the requisition sheet, etc. I have to make sure the staff and I straightening up the area where we prep sandwiches, salad, vegetable, fruits, and produces. This is right in the middle of the pass-through to the kitchen. So I am basically in sight the whole time. I have asked my team a couple of times if everything is all right, which I have been assured that it was because we are a great team. The hardest part of the job is when things get broken "equipment", and repeatedly workers are being absent" it make a problem for other co-workers. But overall, we get the job done and celebrate on our lunch break by treating each other lunch.
Feeding 1.1 million kids healthy and nutritional food.throughout 1, 700 school in New York City along.
Seeing the kids throw away their vegetable, milk, fruit in the garbage.
Science Teacher (Current Employee) – Abuanan Elem. School, Bago City – June 8, 2012
A smile everyday, every hour and every minute.Learned to be patient, fair, firm and open minded. There are schoolheads that are easy to get along with. Just be submissive and optimistic. My co-teachers are all unique. They're my critics. The hardest part in teaching is on how to discipline children from all walks of life. What i like most of being a science teacher is going to trainings with my pupils, we're able to explore new places, the environment, enjoy while learning.
no financial assistance given to pupils who go with the teacher on trainings
It's a good place for me to work, walking distance and able to see my kids while i'm school. Learned to be strict in implementing rules in order the pupils to follow and behave at school. W/ a good relationship w/ co- teachers, we shared different ideas when it comes to teaching and new things that we need to learn, and sometimes family matters.
