Care Provider (Former Employee) – Baytown, TX – May 9, 2017
My position included watching kids in an after school program. We alloyed time for homework, a snack, a group activity, and then physical activity outside or in the gym. Everyday was new and exciting, the greatest part was watching the students grow and learn.
Depending upon the age group you were working with on any given day determined weather an easy rel;axed day to a stressful day. I love children and enjoyed helping them learn something new every time I entered the classroom. The other teachers are most helpful.
To make learning an interesting part of the student's day
the interruptions caused by a dew troubled children which disrupted class time

Great opportunity throughout District. No one to micromanage it is about helping the kids. Open door policy for most campuses and a strive to be the best District in the State. Will do whatever is necessary to give students every opportunity to be successful. Currently moving to become more digital since that is the way the culture we live in is currently heading.
Great place. If you have kids and love children this can be a great way to spend more time with the kiddos.

Working with GCCISD gave me a great opportunity to be with my children and husband during the holidays and more. While my kids where in class i was in class working towards my GEEd.Also working towards my Medical Assistance. Program. Therefore GCCISD have helped my accomplished many of my goals. Today I am currently going to Lee College to complete my Safety Management course. The time in between my bus routes and time off for the summer gave me more opportunity then any other job. I got to meet new people and new students. Had the chance to help many of my students. I have worked for children of 16 years driving a school bus and that have been the high light of my life.
More time with family, and full time have ok benifits.
It depends on how you feel. For me no cons only pros if you look on the brighter side of everthing.
Morning duty monthly, get to work before students and watch them in their holding areas till teachers get their classes. Afternoon duty is daily. Work hours are 8 hours daily from 7:30 am to 3:45 pm. I normally stay till 6 or 7:30 pm, getting things prepared or changing things to accommodate the situations that have changed in the classroom.
Students eat breakfast in the classroom. Start teaching Constantly stop to redirect behaviors Accelerated Instruction Time (small group tutoring) Lunch 30 minutes Recess 15 minutes Go back to the classroom teach for an hour Go to specials (P.E., Art, Music) Go back to class teach for an hour then start cleaning up for dismissal.
The toughest part about teaching is managing 20-23 different behaviors and personalities, all while trying to invest in their learning and help them grow mentally. Teaching them how to problem solve independently.
The most enjoyable part about teaching are the aha/light bulb moments. When students start to click and get what they were struggling with. When it's not so frustrating for them and their confidence is boosted. Having students tell you they love you or that your the best teacher they've ever had.
I learned that no matter what the situation is there is a way to overcome it with positive vibes.
Great benefits and coworker relationships, get to know some great students.
I have done various jobs on several campuses and have never been asked to do anything that I wouldn't or couldn't. I have typed curriculum, substituted for secretaries and lately I worked in the payroll department for almost two years while going through a soft ware conversion.
Special Education Clerk (Former Employee) – Baytown, TX – May 19, 2015
A typical work day would be a mixture of meetings, scheduling meetings, and processing confidential information for our state records. I have learned great work ethics and organization skills that will be a great benefit for another company. At the end of the day management and co workers were great especially when doing the hardest part of my job which was making sure each students individual education plan meetings where held in a organized timely manner according to our compliance calendar (which we were always at 100%). The most enjoyable part of my job was watching the students succeed and getting to know the life working with diagnosticians, LSSP's, SLP's, and many more.
