CLERK III (Former Employee), Suwanee, GAMarch 3, 2015
Pros: days off, seeing kids every day, hours worked, talking with parents
Cons: lack of money
I was in charge of coordinating the substitutes when teachers or other staff members were out. I also worked closely with the principal and both assistant principals. Other activities that I handled daily were payroll, security, and the school email newsletter. I learned a lot about education as well as the daily operations of running an effective and state ranked school. I got along famously with my co-workers. I always had lots of laughs and good times. I still get told that I'm missed at the school and they wish I'd come back. Hardest part of the job was when I couldn't find a sub for a classroom. I would have to do some juggling to make sure we always had a class covered. I enjoyed everything about my job. If it paid more, I would still be there.

Teach 8th grade students high school Physical Science course with highly engaged learning environment.

I learned how to collaborate and lead a team of teachers to accomplish a common goal.

My co-worker learn and assist each other in making our jobs easier while providing the best Science education to our 8th grade students.

The hardest part of my job is balancing my personal financial goals with the pay structure of my chosen profession.

The most enjoyable part of my job is to work with people and plan how I will create an engaging environment for my students to learn Science.

Professional environment, daily impact made and courteous staff
Teacher (Current Employee), Duluth, GAFebruary 15, 2015
Pros: plethora of resources, high parent participation
Cons: short breaks, limited large group space
This company offers opportunities to grow as you get to effectively impact youth on a daily basis. I have learned how to productively work in a professional learning community, disaggregate data and make informed decisions with the data as well as share ideas for the greater good of the whole community. The most difficult part of the job is not being able to be as productive as you would like in the time allotted.

Transportation Team Leader (Current Employee), Suwanee, GAJanuary 26, 2015
This is a job that has full time benefits, but not full time salary. I only work 9 months out of the year. I have dedicated myself to the position and am learning so much. My ideal goal is to find a full time career that I will work all year and receive benefits. I enjoy working with the school staff and students. The hardest part of this job is when you see a student in need or that has been mistreated. I work with some outstanding people.

I loved working with special needs children and their parents.
Bus Monitor (Former Employee), Suwanee, GAJanuary 14, 2015
Pros: children
Cons: pay
I was responsible for special needs children to and from school every day. The schools I was assigned to was difficult schools. One was for the very sick and extremely handicapped and the other was for somewhat violent students. I was hit, cursed at and spit on daily, but I would not have changed schools for nothing. I had good working relationships with my co-workers. The hardest part of my job was the sick children, it broke my heart, they were also the most enjoyable part of my job. I won bus monitor of the year in 2005, that was a great honor.
