Wonderful colleagues, and a very enjoyable workplace...
Pros: our workday is six hours.
Cons: co-payments for healthcare have slightly increased.
We have a great supervisor with very hard-working colleagues. My typical day is teaching multiple subjects to 5th grade gifted students. The most challenging part of the job is ensuring that the students are properly prepared for the state test, and district assessments. The most enjoyable part of the job is when the students are excited about learning, and to see how they have grown cognitively, and intellectually throughout the school year. I have learned how to work collaboratively with my colleagues, and to model for my students how to work effectively with their peers. I have been a Master Teacher, managing groups of teachers, and providing training on how to teach the instructional curriculum in the classroom.
