Good Balance, But Few Hours
Teacher Assistant/Para (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – January 23, 2016
A typical day here starts with coming in and setting up the gym for the Before and/or After School Program. From there we organize the students by grad or club class into lines, then by group by group to wash hands and to snack. From there, we either return the gym and do various activities and homework, or split into our various clubs. On club days, after 5pm, we return to the gym and do an activity before getting balls out til Parents come to pick up their children by 6pm.
This job taught me a lot about how the public school system works, as well as how to deal with families, children, and parents. The management is alright but the top management seems a little biased and doesn't seem to look at both sides of an issue before rendering a verdict or solution. Most of the co-workers are great, but there is a bit of drama from time to time.
The hardest part of the job is the stress that comes with it. It is really hard to manage it at times. However, the most enjoyable part of the job is working with the kids.
