Long/Short Term Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Rockville, MD – September 9, 2013
A typical day is resolving conflicts, planning daily activities and implementing and creating lesson plans. The classroom is like a stage, filled with creative presentation, persuasion and teaching.
I feel teaching sets the stage for all other professions. Where else can you encounter all types of personalities, behaviors, cultures, beliefs, strengths,weakness, and learning abilities all in a day and in the same setting.
You learn how to manage all types of behaviors, personalities, physical, emotional and disabilities all in a days work. You also must learn how to breakdown cultural barriers, and the willingness to learn and accept each others differences.
It can be challenging getting and keeping the attention of such a mixed/diverse classroom and to make others accept each others differences, etc.
It's very rewarding, when you put a smile on a kids face, when you wipe away the tears, when you get hugs, when you're told how much they love you, and when they conquer a task.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, GA – February 4, 2018
Great people to work with, scheduling was fair. I left the position because every other month employees were required to work night shift with no additional pay differential for working night shift. The compensation was above the state minimum wage, but there was a fair amount of turn over because of low wages in the area. They were willing to train and send to classes and school.
