Stressful, overly critical, and provide tons of resources
Early Interventionist Program Teacher (Current Employee) – College Park, GA – March 16, 2016
I have to report to duty at 7:10am. Then by 7:45am I have to begin my instructional duties by pushing into classrooms and providing instructional services for struggling, challenging students. Students are very disruptive and violent. I have to manage obstinate students while teaching them the content, and helping them to improve from being below two or three grade levels. Next, I help administer assessments called progress monitoring, through Diebels. Additionally, I read and analyze data, conduct collaborative meetings with peers in order to do lesson planning, and lastly participate in professional development training.
My coworkers and managerial staff are wonderful to work with. Everyone is very supportive and friendly in the school building. The working climate is laid back and has a sense of camaraderie. However, the hardest part of the working environment is dealing with a poverty-stricken, aggressive, and dysfunctional demographic of student body. The work load is difficult to manage. There are tons of testing, and the paper work that is required, in order to keep up with the demands of accountability is challenging. Moreover, I truly enjoy the breaks and long holidays we are afforded as Educators. It enables me to spend quality time with my children and family. I enjoy the security that my job brings in my life. Furthermore, due to the structure and the routines within my job it provides a great deal of stability.
very organize and thorough in the management of district
