Enjoyed working with children.
TMR Teacher Assistant (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKDecember 4, 2013
Pros: children, education, co-workers
Cons: pay, healthcare, and management
In a typical day I assisted the lead teacher, working one on one with developmentally disabled children, helping them learn the basic life and education skills. I learned to understand that everyone is special and has a unique personality. I didn't always agree with managment decisions but respected them. My co-workers were great people to work with – more... because of their passion for teaching and love for the children. The hardest part of my job was having to see such wonderful, happy children struggle with their disabilities, but the most enjoyable part of the job was witnessing the childrens success. – less

Cafeteria Worker (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OKSeptember 18, 2013
Managing a Thrift store was not as hard as I thought It would be. I would manage about 4-5 employees threw out the day. I would manage the money drops also manage the drawer count at the end of the shift. My duties would also include making sure the back room was always ready for tomorrow.

Worked in this school
Former school teacher at this location (Former Employee), Okc okFebruary 15, 2013
Pros: summer breaks
Cons: the pay, the parents, the administration, and a lot of the kids ;-(
If you want a challenge then this is the place; it's not for the faint at heart. Little pay, little respect, little help! But if you have the opportunity to change one life then it'll be well worth the hassle you will endure while working here.

Productive and challenging with an opportunity to change lives for the better
Paraprofessional/Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKDecember 15, 2012
Pros: flexible hours, numerous days off throughout the calendar year
Cons: short lunches, no benefits
Arrive early, greet children, and attempt to bring out the best in each child.

I learn each day that no matter our age, race, or financial status, we can learn something from everyone.

Managing a classroom while the home room teacher is absent can be quite challenging, but the rewards far outweigh any challenges. Home room teacher notes assist a great – more... deal.

Other teachers are there to assist when needed which relieves pressure.

The hardest part of my job is enforcing the established classroom discipline procedures (because they look so sweet and innocent).

The most enjoyable part of my job is leaving proud/praise notes for the home room teacher. Another enjoyable part of my job is witnessing a child grasp a concept that they have been struggling with. – less
