Special Day Class Teacher (Former Employee), Salinas, CA – February 11, 2013
Pros: career growth opportunities
Cons: effects of budget cuts on education funding.
I start my school day by taking my 2 of my students to the cafeteria to pick up the breakfast. The 2 students will set the table for breakfast. The rest of the students are independently preparing for breakfast and morning activities. The day generally is always productive for both the students and the teaching staff. each students has a school tasks – more... and functional activities to accomplish for the day. I learned a lot of good experiences, I learned the value of life with my students. Its not how huge change or accomplishment is made for each day, but how much time and opportunities are provided to each students in each day. Routine and systematic classroom management are very essential in ensuring the efficiency of the teaching staff and students success. The hardest part of the job is when my students who have severe medical conditions are getting very ill and missed school and some passed away. Though most of it is very enjoyable, each school day when I see my students coming in with various facial expression, some are excited, some are fearful and some wondering. Another one is when I see them leaving the classroom to go their assigned outdoor task. Some will attend mainstreaming classes, some will volunteer for work and some will go to their supported employment. – less

Here, my title was Secretary II (Former Employee), Salinas, CA – June 14, 2012
Pros: flexable lunches, time off when i needed it. very understanding people.
Cons: no health insurance or secure placement.
I arrived fifteen minutes early to have my breakfast. I first was assigned to work with the Williams Legislation Program where I would prepare schools lists and assigning county employees to inspect school sites for erosion damages to school site. When my assignment was completed, I was transferred to the Business Office as Secretary II where I was – more... trained by the Secretary I to assist her in preparing conference meetings, registering and reserving conference rooms for other off site companies. Management was so very kind, caring and helpful when I needed them. My co-workers were always there when I needed assistance in jobs I was not yet familiar with that were assigned to me. The hardest part of my job was learning to take minutes in a conference meeting which I still would probably have trouble learning. The most enjoyable part of my job was all of the training I received with out prejudice knowing that they would do all they could to try and keep me there as an employee by transferring me to different departments until they could not keep me any longer. – less
