Pros: summers off
Cons: having to look for a summer job every year
working at the Donahue has been a great experience for me
your greeted with smiles from the students as soon as you walk in
grab a coffee and your busy day begins.answering phones while teachers are asking for copies or something to be faxed while assisting the person on the phone reaching out to collect the materials the teachers need while smiling and nodding at the same time your being paged to the principals office, as soon as you get up from your desk theirs a parent that walks in needing to helped and
late students are arriving you find your self hurrying to issue them their late passes at the same time letting the parent know that i am needed in the principals office and that i will be with her in a few minuets,then head off to the principals office for a small attendance meeting,running back to run off some copies and send out some faxes,call to set up meeting with parents,monitoring students
attendance daily ,keeping track of logs, filing of court papers. and daily data entry. I have learned learned about all the different agencies that can help people in the communities, situation students face at home,court system and their policies,learning about the computer programs on my own,and each person makes a difference at the school.even if that means being more than one person.i have been at the same school for seventeen yrs and lets just say Management is not like it use to be, coworkers for the most part were great but like in every place you get a few you can go with out.
the hardest part of the job is when DYS gets involved ,its not easy seeing a child be taken away from their family.
the most enjoyable part is watching the children enter kindergarding
and watching them grow , . the best feeling of all is when they come back after they graduate from high schoolit makes you feel proud that you had a partin their lives
