Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – August 9, 2017
I enjoy working as a substitute teacher but I have had the occasion to feel like I was taken advantage of. I don't mind helping out but when I worked as a long term sub I feel like I had more duties than the teachers!
School Attendance and Office Clerk (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – July 23, 2017
Salary is low due to school district but the people are usually fun to work with. Coming from the corporate sector it is a big change financially but knowing that you can have a positive impact on children is rewarding.
Do your research first before accepting position with certain schools
Guidance Secretary (Former Employee) – Collinsville, VA – February 25, 2017
Drama, drama, drama and that was from the office coworkers and supervisory staff. The teachers were great. Like I described above, research your intended location; it depends on where you work and who your supervisors are.
Good insurance, good retirement, summer off every year
Teacher (Former Employee) – McDonough, GA – December 29, 2016
I am very passionate about what I do not take things lightly. I love to make a difference in the lives of my students and I love showing them that they can accomplish anything that they set their mind to do. I get joy from seeing them accomplish what they thought was impossible and then say that was easy. I learned that for most of my students all the need is someone to show that they care and they will work for you no matter what.
Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) – McDonough, GA 30253 – December 16, 2016
I worked in the Henry County Schools District from 1999-2007. While I was there I worked with some of the most competent educators and administrators in my twenty-five year career.
Daily we were given support from the administrators all the way to the county level from the school level. I learned that dedication to the children is the most valuable position an educator can bring to the table.
Children, when inspired, are capable of achieving the highest levels of success.
Our "top down" management by principals, counselors, superintendents, department leaders and in-house staff was successful year after year because we worked as a team.
My co-workers were willing to put in the extra effort to make our students shine!
The hardest part of the job was the speed at which the school year traveled! One just gets to know and bond with the children....and the year is over and we move on to other new students.
The most enjoyable part was that I never knew exactly what the next day would bring. What I knew was that I woke up nearly every morning "a rarin' to go". I was seldom bored and always challenged to help the students grow to be productive, satisfied adults when they graduated.
constant help and growth through top quality administrators
short breaks, a tremendous amount of paperwork [but worth it !]
I'm new to middle school and this is an adjustment but I'm able to perform
AU Paraprofressional (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – December 7, 2016
This school is now adjusting to a change in leadership. The climate is a great deal different from the smaller community setting. There are more people and fewer ties personally. However, the work load is bearable and I love the children I work with.
the compensation and benefits for this entire county is awful.
Counselor (Current Employee) – Locust Grove, GA – August 17, 2016
I have worked with Henry County Schools for 2 months. My typical day involves working directly with educators, students and parents to ensure student success.
I provide BSF and DBT counseling skills to youth who are struggling with both emotional and physical (self-harm) challenges. I also assist the LCSW with facilitating group sessions to adolescents.
In my 11 years of counseling, I have provided guidance, life skills/coping strategies, small group counseling, home visits, and resources to families. I have learned the importance of being a great listener, patient, staying in the moment, and being honest with students and parents.
The most enjoyable part of my job is helping adolescents overcome barriers that impact their emotional, mental and physical wellbeing.
Being in a climate that values strong relationships with families.
Not being able to touch all of those who are in need (Time and Resources).
Substitute Teacher K-12 (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – July 13, 2016
I find it very rewarding when your able to help a child understand their assignment. The schools in this county have the same rules. The only downside of the job is difficult students, but the staff are very helpful with these situations.
This job helped me to work with special need children
Bus Monitor (Former Employee) – McDonough, GA – April 5, 2016
This was a job that helped me to learn how to care for children that had special needs that rode the bus. I had a very good coworker, I felt good knowing that the children felt safe when riding the bus to school. I had a good team player.
School Nutrition Assistant (Current Employee) – Hampton, GA – January 18, 2016
A typical day at work is always exciting knowing you are working towards one common goal alongside your co-workers which is to get the job done. My co-workers are fun to be around and we all work together as a unit to get the job done. I enjoy every second of every day of my job.
Teacher Assistant (Current Employee) – McDonough, GA – September 11, 2015
A typical day in education is assisting the teacher and students. In the field I currently work in, well, its overwhelming at times due to the fact we work with children with behavioral/emotional issues. I learned many years ago to leave work at work, otherwise, I would worry myself silly over these children!
