Pros: learning to be resourceful and participating in student success
Cons: unhealthy work/life balance
A typical work day begins between 6:45 and 7:30 in the morning, and can end between 4, 5 p.m.. or later. Although routines are established, no day at work is ever the same. Strategic problem solving and effective communication skills are a must when working with co-workers, parents, students and management.
The most challenging part of the job is single handedly managing a classroom of diverse learners with wide a range of skill levels, abilities, socioeconomic and behavioral needs.
The most enjoyable part of my job is the group of people I work closely with and helping children develop self confidence so that they can achieve their academic goals.
