Bilingual Community Aide (Current Employee) –  Fontana, CAApril 14, 2017
Great environment and extremely rewarding! It does take a lot of patience to work with students but there is nothing else like it.
Overall, the management is positive. The hardest part of working here is personnel. Many staff members are great but there are several people that are needed to create a positive school environment. That puts a lot of strain on team work. However, if you find a great team, success is attainable.

amazing job with outstanding benefits
Printer Publisher Operator I (Former Employee) –  Fontana, CADecember 26, 2016
this job was by far the best job i could've asked for but was too young and stupid to appreciate it. Now i am struggling working a retail job that would rather hire a bunch of part timers than upgrade their full timer's salaries and knowledge because it is more feasible to hire expendables than make their business grow and be sought after by others.

Easy going and enjoyable work environment
School Teacher (Current Employee) –  Fontana, CANovember 27, 2016
I enjoy interacting with the youth of today. The job is fairly easy going and the kids are interesting. The only down part is if a sub is not needed, but you pretty much make your own hours, so it works out.

*My typical day of work at FUSD was to prepare documents and activities at the school site, visit the families scheduled for that day, visiting family at their home and work with the parent and children enrolled in the program.

*I learned the importance of a developing a relationship with the parents and promoting this relationship with the parents, school and community too.

* Very Supportive and helpful management.

* Excellent co-workers who I considered my family.

*The hardest part of the job was having to say good bye to the families after their children exited the program.

*Seeing the children grow physical, emotional and intellectually.
