Typical day at work
Parent Services Assistant / Family Support Worker (Current Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – November 13, 2012
My typical day at work begins with teaching the Child Develpment Class to teen moms participating in our program, and which last about an hour, before they have to go to school everyday. After that I go on to the child develpment center to take attendance of all the kids in the my class rooms; I have a caseload of 14 families. Everyday I learn something new with my teenagers and everyone in general at work; and while performing my duties at work. I would say that the hardest part of the job is not being able to provide everything that families need directly from our program; I refer families to community resources and others if possible; unfortunatelly there's only so much I can do for them; unfortunatelly I cannot change their lives completely. And, the most enjoyable part of my job is working with my teens, guiding them, teaching and being there for them; I'm a people person; if I don't have the answer to your question, you better believe that I will look for it and deliver it to you. I enjoy doing my job in general.

i have none at the moment; so far i have been able to deal with everything that comes my way
