Assistant Principal of Instruction (Current Employee) – Smith High School – June 16, 2016
I believe the best resource a student can have is an educator that believes that he or she can learn. Teacher efficacy if very important in meeting the academic and social needs of students. It is imperative that I use my education and experience to equip student's with the 21st century skills and knowledge needed in be productive and successful in our society today. Each and everyday I give every student, teacher, parent, and staff member my very best. As the instructional leader, I know that these stakeholders depend on me to maintain a clear vision, a nurturing school climate, and a safe and effective learning environment. It's very rewarding to see stakeholders work together to implement strategies geared toward increasing student achievement. Getting stakeholders to buy in to the vision can be a difficult task at times, but being consistent and passionate about doing the work of educating children makes the task less challenging.
Teacher (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – June 16, 2016
My coworkers are fantastic! They work hard for their students giving their very best each and every day. When you basically only have 15-20% of the students who want to learn and the other 80% or so are allowed to disrupt the classroom with little or no consequences, it does not allow the others to be the very best students they can truly become. As well as teachers being the very best they can be as well.

Mission Possible Specialist (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – May 9, 2016
The Mission Possible department and team has been the greatest place to work with the greatest group of people. This position gave me the opportunity to be innovative with the support I offered teachers. The most enjoyable part of the job was, seeing teachers grow in their instruction and relationships with children. The hardest part of the job was not being able to coach more teachers because of time constraints or lack of human resources.
I learned in this position that highly impacted schools want the same things for their students as affluent schools, but they have to do it with limited resources, which makes it harder and it seems to go slower and cause burn out in teachers sooner.
Incentive funds for staffs at highly impacted schools
I enjoy working closely with the employees of Guilford County Schools, as well as with the children I am placed with. The various employees are welcoming and friendly, as well as the environment I am placed in. I do feel as though I acclimate well to most places I work in general, but I truly love working with students.

Guilford County Schools when compared to other counties has an excellent, and well organized special education system. Paperwork is very easy to complete and implement.

Instructional Support (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – January 26, 2016
Instructional Support is challenging but worthwhile. Teaching Assistants can have a tremendous impact on students and teachers if they are directed to work with students primarily and support the classroom teachers with administration and other tasks.
Assisting students with Special Needs. How to work with several people instructors in the same room. All my managers/supervisors were nice, some didn't know the job, but that was where patience was helpful. Some of my co-workers were a little dramatic, some were hard workers with good work ethics, some were very entertaining, and some were professionals. The hardest part of my job as an assistant was waiting to become highly qualified to teach. The most enjoyable part was to see a child smile, to know that they were making progress and that you were apart of that progress and joy.
