Office Assistant (Current Employee), Fremont, CA – January 8, 2013
Pros: all the time off, summers, holidays
Cons: not enough hrs.
A typical day at work for me. I start work at 8am but usually there at least 20 minutes early. Students start arriving around 8:15, one of the first things I take care of are the students coming in tardy. At about 8:50 I email the lunch count into the main kitchen at the high school. I listen to my voicemails from parents regarding their students absences. – more... The absences get cleared into the school system along with the tardies that the teachers have entered after taking attendance. I run the report that shows which teachers have entered their absences. I call the teachers that have not entered their absences to make sure they have no one absent in their classroom. Most of the new registrations are done in the month of January. At that time, we check proof of residency and all the necessary documents needed to register a student. I work for a wonderful principal and secretary. I love that we are a team and work well together. The hardest part of the job is dealing with irate parents but I always handle it by keeping in mind that we all have our bad days and stay calm. Show them that I do understand and I will do my best to remedy the situation. The most enjoyable part of my job is listening to some of the cute reasons students give for being tardy. – less
Productive and Creative Educational Work Environment
Classified Substitute (Current Employee), CA – May 29, 2012
Pros: training on different areas, use my various skills
Cons: subbing has no benefits; sick day, vacation pay if needed.
Enjoyed every part of it except the once in a while heavy lifting of the older students for the Special Ed. segments. 90% of co workers were very helpful and I just needed direction for me to take the initiatives as a substitute for the day. Most of my work was subbing and the least thing I enjoyed was being pulled in the middle of a job I began to – more... enjoy to be placed to another place of greater needs, as was told. But I quickly adjusted as a sub to new places and arrangements. Did not enjoy traveling to different places everyday, so was very happy with long term place after I had to prove my hard work. – less
