Team Leader & Lead Teacher (Current Employee) – Perry, GA – April 26, 2017
A typical day at work starts at 7:00 a.m. when I let my little angels in the building. daily I learn to take one day in at a time. The management and staff are second to none at my school. The workplace and culture is that of a family atmosphere. The hardest part of my job is seeing students who don't care about their future. The most thing I enjoy is teaching, communicating with adults, making my students, and administrative team proud.
Repeated Behaviors by the same students and the pack of parental support with each individual child.
Faculty and students worked together to create a positive learning atmosphere for students.
Family & Consumer Science Teacher (Former Employee) – Rehobeth High School – February 8, 2017
I taught Family & Consumer Science classes, such as Parenting, Foods & technology, Clothing Design, and Family Connections classes. I was not only responsible for lesson plans & teaching these classes, I was also required to do all the custodial work for my classroom, large sewing area and four kitchen area. The hardest part of the job was trying to keep this huge area clean, while also teaching, grading papers, cooking activities, etc.
Great faculty & great learning atmosphere.
Very long hours, after students left, I often had to clean, grade papers, enter grades in the computer and do lesson plans.
Warehouse Technician (Current Employee) – Warner Robins, GA 31088 – October 26, 2016
Working for the Houston County board of education I get to meet all sorts of people. From the employees I work with on a daily basis to dealing with secretaries and principals. I meet all kinds of different people with different personalities. I enjoy dealing with different employees when it comes to delivering the school supplies. I enjoy seeing the kids in the schools going to class and to watch them in different sporting activities. This school system is a great place to work the employees all over the school system are friendly.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Perry, GA – February 18, 2016
Houston County Board of Education has provided me with a great working environment as well as the essential tools I need to perform my job. I have learned from this job experience how to be patience and listen. I have grasp the concept of supervising young adults by adapting to their learning techniques and disseminating the fundamental information needed to graduate from high school. In addition, my co-workers have taught me how to be a team player. The hardest part of my job is when I can not get through to the student the information that is vital for life. The most enjoyable part of my day is the expressing on the students face as they absorb the information I am pouring out.
Sub/Lunch Room (Former Employee) – Houston, CO – January 10, 2016
To work with the children is great, but some of the staff are very unfriendly and rude. They never really smile, they seem like they are upset and they are just not happy. Not a very positive work place to be at in the kitchen.
Student Services Clerk (Former Employee) – Perry, GA – October 2, 2015
Loved everything about the first job with the BOE. Had great peers and supervisors. Left the position because of hour reduction. Took another position within the same department. In the second position, I loved my job but didn't get the administrative support necessary to provide quality services when needed. My coworkers and immediate supervisor were great.
Mover (Former Employee) – Warner Robins, GA – August 6, 2015
Each morning I would help load up the Semi - truck at 7:30 A.M. if it was not done from yesterday afternoon. When the Semi- truck was loaded we went to different schools and unloaded the textbooks and furniture and then we would go to another school and unload more items there. I learned how to lift properly from here and how to work with teens and adults with very different backgrounds than myself. The management and co-workers were alright although sometimes there was a lot of crude humor. The hardest thing about this job is not having a sense for why other people's behavior on the job is crude. The most enjoyable part of this job was the 1 hour lunch break and sometimes we would go out as a group to Pizza Hut.
1 hour lunch breaks, air conditioned break room
co-workers humor could be crude, very short breaks other than lunch
