Pros: being a moral role model for stuents
Cons: having the responsibility of at least 3 workers and being paid as a student just out of college.
As a teacher and overall school worker, I enjoyed working with students in a helping manner to bring their skills up to advanced.
Since the school was losing money if they did not have a certain number of students that were sufficient or advanced in Reading, Math and Language.
The school system went thru an overall change when a
New chancellor was appointed by the Mayor. The new policies that was made did not allow for seniors to be employed past the age of
55 to 60. Of course its illegal to say based on your age, so people were excessed or asked to take a pay cut that amounted to half or below half the pay they were currently making. The only area I agreed with was getting rid of teachers who was not functioning at their best or who no longer had the children's interest in their daily functioning.
I also agreed with the dismissal of any employee who was not functioning at their capacity.
The school I worked at was a wonderful school, the Assistant Principal, at that time, was great with the staff and the parents. We received a new Principal who was also good with the parents and with establishing school policy.
