Recreation Aide (Current Employee), Long Beach, CAJuly 18, 2015
Make sure the children are safe and welcomed on campus.

Teach children how to interact with each other through playing games and healthy conflict resolution.

Children can be challenging and unpredictable but that is part of the fun!

Keeping an understanding that we 'all' are constantly growing and learning everyday, helps.

Enjoyable, rewarding, flexible job.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Long Beach,CAJuly 10, 2015
Pros: Flexibel Schedule, good amount of work most of the time, able to choose subject and grade level, user friendly system for finding assignments.
Cons: Some weeks work teaching assignments can be scarce.
A typical work day as a substitute teacher for the Long Beach unified school district usually starts the night before by checking online. If an assignment is not found, then I check again in the morning usually around 6:00. After getting an assignment arrive at the school a little early, check in at the office with the secretary, sign in and get keys and sub folder. Next head to the classroom, locate lesson plans, and teach away.

This job has helped me develop and practice different classroom management techniques.

As a substitute I feel supported by other teacher, school administration, and staff. Over all I have had great experiences working at different schools throughout the district. I also feel supported by the district.

The hardest part of this job would have to be the unpredictable schedule at times. Some weeks there are lots of jobs, some very few.

The most enjoyable part of the job is the flexibility. Everyday is different.

Best place to work if you love children and people
Recreation Aide (Current Employee), Long Beach, CAApril 23, 2015
Pros: Being able to work with the children
Everyday children greet you with hi's and hugs which is the best feeling because they like you that much. Children look for role models and someone they can relate to when they want and I am glad that's what I can provide as well as being their "coachie".

Coach (Former Employee), Long Beach, CAApril 10, 2015
Pros: Free lunch

Trained and mentored high school girls with the fundamentals of soccer. Ensured the eligibility of all students in the current grading period. Co-workers were very communicative and friendly.

Pros: casual work environment, great benefits, excellent retirement

Head Start Instructional Aide (Former Employee), Long Beach, CAFebruary 14, 2015
Pros: great benefits and great hours.
I really enjoyed working for Long Beach Unified School District/Headstart. The headstart department was experiencing changes such as management and it seemed that it was going to be a great change. I left my job because I moved out of the area and the drive was going to be too much for me.

Flexible and Enjoyable
Recreation Aide (Current Employee), Long Beach, CAJanuary 18, 2015
Pros: flexible
Cons: management
I would input student attendance and managed a program at a high school. The hardest part of the job is working with the students because it is disappointing when the staff works so hard to create a great program and the result is one or two students actually showing up. The most enjoyable part is the connections you make with the students and when you see them grow academically or socially. Management could have been better since there was no really any direction when I was initially hired. As for the co-workers, some work harder than others and get the same recognition.

Getting to work with children has really helped me as a person
On-Site Computer Technician (Current Employee), Long Beach, CADecember 13, 2014
Being the only one on campus who has a good understanding of technologies, I find myself very busy. It's the type of busy, however, that is very rewarding and I feel like I make a huge difference. The people are caring, the students are friendly, and everyone works hard for the same goal... To ensure a bright future for these kids. I love it here!
