I have a very busy schedule and enjoy working with the children, families, and colleagues
Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant (Current Employee) – Newark, NJ – February 1, 2016
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.
