Wonderful students and a great job!
Kindergarten Teacher, North Mianus Elementary (Current Employee) – Greenwich, CT – April 7, 2013
I was hired three days before school began for a one year position after the school went over their anticipated kindergarten numbers. All of my new co-workers were extremely supportive while I turned what was a reading room into a classroom and quickly learned the curriculum.
I get to work at 8am to prepare for the day and my students begin arriving at 8:30. From there I am on the go until 3:30 when the last student leaves. A typical day includes morning meeting, math, snack, reader’s workshop, writer’s workshop, word study, recess, specials, read aloud or science, lunch, and literacy centers. I encourage students to have fun while learning and to be curious. We have a lot of fun throughout the year because I believe learning is supposed to be enjoyable and encourage students to want to learn not just in the classroom but everywhere.
wonderful students, great work environment, supportive staff, amazing job, benefits
i am not tenured and am not guaranteed a job next year.
