I work with special needs students and students on behavior plans so my job is both rewarding and challenging.
Educational Assistant (Current Employee) – Fairfield, OH – November 16, 2014
While there is nothing typical about my work day, we do have a routine of allowing students to unpack their backpack and hang up coats, then do work on their goals whether they are academic or social.
I have learned to observe the students to see if they come in smiling or annoyed to determine the best way to de-escalate the situation.
The hardest parts are the unpredicted lashing out.
The best parts are successfully maneuvering those situations.
Working with students, snow days
part time employment with no opportunity for advancing
