Coordinator Teacher (Former Employee) – John Muir Child Development – June 4, 2017
While working for Long Beach Unified School District Child Development Program afforded me the opportunity to promote from classroom teacher to a Director over two schools. A typical day at work was greeting parents and children while during state regulated paperwork. My duties required me to wear many hats such as a counselor, seamstress, nurse, social worker and custodian. My day was always filled, never boring. My job also entailed attending staff development meetings, as well as holding, and overseeing staff and parent meetings. While working I learned how to interact with parents and staff members. I learned how to defused angry parents when issues that involved their children and staff members.
My responsibilities included supervising teachers, childcare workers, school clerk, and housekeepers. My job also included training high school students who wanted to become childcare workers. The workplace culture consisted of Blacks,Hispanics, Asians, and Samoans.
The hardest part of my job was when I had to do classroom coverage because their were no substitute teachers available and at the same time trying to turn in required paperwork that was required by the state on time.
The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting new parents and students as well as providing an educational center where children enjoyed coming in daily. I mostly enjoy hearing what children would say. Their conversation brought me so much laughter.
