Great place to work, but there are no opportunities for promotion and career advancement. Co-workers are helpful, kind and productive and managers are supportive and respectful. The most enjoyable part of the job is working to improve the lives of youngsters and their families.
Inability to provide all the supports that a family may need.
My typical day at work is answering incoming phone calls dealing with Spanish Parents. I work in a fast pace environment dealing with children and my position is diversified. The co-workers are very nice and very helpful. It is a very busy office setting with many nice teachers who are educated. The hardest part of my position is dealing with a mixed culture neighborhood. I enjoy greeting the teachers and parents early in the morning. I have learned so much from my position for the past year I have been there.
I learned how to become a man. Management was always there to help me with anything.The hardest part of the job was keepung it.I enjoyed the benefits and the pay i recieved,i can pay all my billsat once and i miss that and need that back.I loved my co workers they were like family they helped me whenever i asked.
It is hard to describe a typical day at work as I have worked in many different schools in several capacities. In my current position, my day may consist of meetings, testing students, writing reports, collaborating with teachers or other team members, writing IEPs, or receiving professional development. I have worked for different administrators and have managed to work successfully with all of them, despite different personalities and styles. I have had the good fortune to work with some intelligent dedicated people, which is so important when working on a child study team. The hardest part of the job is when not everyone is vested in helping the student, whether it is a staff member or parent. Also, working in an area where most are living in poverty, it is difficult to see children and their families have to deal with the stress of their environment. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing results in the children and families I work with.
Having an important position, working to help others, working as a team
Lack of resources, seeing what some people have to go through, parking availability
Everyday is enjoyable working with children. I learn different ways to help and motivate young men and woman. I am the union Rep for my school, and I assist my co-workers with many different situations. I deal with the Administration very often with various issues in our school. The hardest part of my job dealing with the difficult children.

Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Newark, NJ – December 4, 2015
The kids were great..Your always going to have a bad seed somewhere.
The educational system needs a major tune-up. Typical day is a hard one. My student's consisted of gang members who usually bought that into the class-room. I would use it as a "teachable moment" I learned so many things from them..I had no street smarts, but I can surely handle myself now ..Oh, the new brand of English.. ..WOW!! I pretty much stayed to myself or was going over lesson plans, co-workers were very helpful in my transition to Newark Public Schools. Enjoyable part honestly is when the kids came an entire two weeks of school.
This work environment allowed me the opportunity meet, help and assist many people. The most enjoyable part of this job was working alongside of my colleagues who were also supportive and lived in the Community where we worked.
