Being a role model to diverse students
Substitute teacher (Current Employee), New York, NYJuly 23, 2014
Pros: being a role model for kids
Cons: children misbehaving because they know you are the substitute teacher
A typical day at work as a substitute teacher is fairly simple. Instructions and lesson plan will usually be prepare and when it is not available I'll need to use my sample lesson plan for the day. The most important thing as a substitute teacher is classroom management and maintaining order. We usually work alone unless there are student teacher, para – more... professionals and co teacher. Para professional and co teachers are only available when I'm in a integrated co teacher classroom. The hardest part of the job is working with students who has IEPS. Each student with IEPS have different needs so what work for one student with IEP does not work for another. We need to keep coming up with new strategies to help them. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to assist the children in learning and growing as a person. – less

Obesity Task Force Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 21, 2014
The DOE in New York City has an incredible reach in serving the largest school district in the country.

Bilingual School Psychologist (Current Employee), PS 244 5400 Tilden Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11203July 15, 2014
This job requires real dedication with a mix of enthusiasm in meeting various daily challenges originated from administration, parents, and the children that fall under your caseload. Caseload is not always predictable because parents have the right to request an evaluation or reevaluation of their children at all times. The school administration and – more... the pupil personnel committee play a crucial role in determining the caseload. The hardest moments in this job often times vary with the nature of the case (s) at hand. The interest of the administration in a particular case can tilt the balance in the decision making process and can make thing very hard. Thus the good and professional relationship with various entities involved, including the school administrators, the School Assessment Team members as well as the service providers and the classroom teachers tends to be often put to test according to the nature of cases. The outcome is not always predictable due to differences in personality as well as expectations. The joy of having everyone on board is ineffable! – less

Cofounder and 9-12th English teacher (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 9, 2014
Pros: students
Cons: administrators
My typical day consisted of me teaching English to 9-12th grade students of low socioeconomic status. I learned that leadership requires a unique individual who is able to balance the workload of his or her collaborative workforce. Due to the influence of the high stake testing, teachers and students were often under stressful situations. The hardest – more... part of the job was to teach effectively with all the added paperwork. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the students gain motivation to learn. – less

A great place to work for that offers much to learn.
Licensed Bilingual School Social Worker (Current Employee), New York, NYMay 28, 2014
Pros: long summer vacations.
Cons: i think it is a great place to work for.
A typical day at work includes working with children and adults from eight in the morning till about three in the afternoon. The job offers many opportunities to learn about cultural diversities, learning and developmental delays, mental retardation, autism, emotional disabilities, etc. One can also appreciate different learning styles. The supervisors – more... are great. They offer good guidance and professional support. The co-workers are nice. They are real team players, who work in collaboration with each-other. The hardest part of the job is making sure that the recommendations one makes for a student, are the most adequate ones, and that the program that one is recommending is available. The most enjoyable part of it is knowing that one has helped a child, and/or a family. – less
