Although I have great benefits, there are safety concerns when there aren't enough security officers available for the high school campuses. Classroom management is not a major problem because students are there to succeed. Since the district opened the enrollment, it has opened the door for those who are focused on their academic success.
My typical day begins at 7 a.m. when I arrive to set up my classroom for the lessons for the day. I have one prep period and it is not enough time to set up everything necessary for each and every student. I have three periods of seniors who are focused on how each and every day will meet their needs in higher education. Then, I have a prep period, lunch with tutoring students, and then the last two periods are juniors who are also thinking about college every day. The last period is after the last bell in the computer lab. I instruct students who are working on a computerized course to recover credits for classes they have failed. Considering these courses were probably failed their freshman year, I have to refresh their memory of literary works or historical facts. After 5 p.m., I am out the door to my next tutoring stint at Huntington Learning center where I meet two to three students for a two-hour class to better their learning skills. So, after Huntington, I arrive home at or about 8:30 to 9:00 p.m.
Prep period and lunch are connected, and makes for longer tutoring time
expectations are that I am available every day before, during, and after school.
