This is the place to be if you want part time work/pay, but not for a career or any type of advancement.
Instructional/Special Needs Assistant (Current Employee) –  Manor Elementary SchoolMarch 5, 2014
With school systems going downhill it's very hard to stay afloat. Hours are getting cut drastically and schools are "doubling" up responsibilities - especially in the special needs areas. There are no advancements that can be made here if you are an existing hourly employee - only cuts.
Pros
Summer off, holidays off. Knowing in advance what your schedule is.
Cons
No raises, only cuts. Overloads of children.

This district does an excellent job of meeting the needs of a diverse population.
Principal/Coordinator of the Summer School Program (Former Employee) –  Monroe, MIJuly 12, 2012
My typical day was a combination of making sure that classes were starting and ending on time; attendance was being taken and reported properly; smooth transition of morning and afternoon sessions; making sure that all equipment was running properly, such as the copy machines, vending machines, etc.; taking care of any discipline issues; and making sure that all students were picked up after school.

I was the only administrator present. I had very good evaluations.

My staff was excellent. They were very invested in making sure that all of the students were learning and earning their credits.

The hardest part of the job was keeping the students on task during the hottest part of the summer, especially during County Fair Week.
The most enjoyable part was presenting the students with their final passing credits. We had very good retention and passing rates.
Pros
helping students get the credits they needed for graduation.
Cons
sticking to attendance rules when parents wanted to pull students out for vacations.
