Paraprofessional (Current Employee) – Lansing, MI – September 18, 2016
Good learning environment for my future goals. Working towards Masters in Education with focus on Autism Spectrum Disorders. Learned how to apply strategies of working with autistic students (ages 8 to 24). Lead teacher and aide awesome to work with. Hardest part of job was knowing when and how to step-in as well as back off. Incredibly fulfilling when you have a breakthrough with any of these students (like watching your child take his first steps).
Teaching children in an inclusive environment with the desire to learn.
Spanish Immersion Teacher (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – August 14, 2015
Lansing School District can be a challenging work environment. Everyone knows that teachers are expected to perform exceptionally with little to no resources. Lansing is especially challenging because it is a Title I District.
The highlight of my work experience in Lansing was to work with such talented and professional individuals. Since Lansing is such a tough place to work, you only find people working there who are dedicated to what they are doing.
elementary school cashier (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – December 14, 2014
I usually went in early. I loved my job at the school. I would go in and check my phone for messages.. Make any phone calls that needed to be made. Get breakfast packed and sent to classes. Do lunch count for the day and get lunch in oven. Collect any money necessary and set up cafeteria. Put money in accounts. Then time to serve lunch. Put it away when done. Put lunch count in computer. Print off any letters that needed to go home telling parent there child owes for lunch. Two times a week go to the bank and deposit money. I learned that children are very impressionable. the hardest part about the job was knowing certain children was not getting enough to eat at home at the meals ate at school was all they were going to get for the day. The most enjoyable part of the job was making a difference in a childs life for the better. To know they looked up to me for guidance.
Public Safety officer(former) (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – November 20, 2014
STAY AWAY!!!! The management have no idea what they are doing. Too much micromanagement and playing favorites. The Director is threatened by anyone with any real Police Experience or any real experience for that matter. They have no regard for officer safety. If you value your sanity and your name STAY AWAY. The old Chief of Police from Lansing pulls the strings for the Department and is ruining it just like she did Lansing PD.
Public Safety used to a great place to work under the old boss. But they promoted a power hungry person who has no clue what she is doing
Excellent benefits, positive work environment, supportive supervisor

Sometimes training and development was not applicable to job
Challenging and ever-changing job to educate young minds
Middle and Elementary School Teacher (Current Employee) – Various location in Lansing, MI – June 18, 2014
There is not a typical day at work. The job varies depending on what needs to get done with students. Things can change but the core of the job is teaching the major subjects to 9 and 10 year olds and helping them to learn what needs to be covered. Kids are unpredictable which makes them the most enjoyable part of the job. The hardest part of the job is juggling all the expectations that are placed on you by parents, colleagues, administration and the state of Michigan.
