At the time of my employment at ACC I was just learning to become a teacher, it was a great place to begin. My coworkers were knowledgeable and patient and so was my supervisor. There was a great mix of students from all cultures and backgrounds. It is a good place to learn and work.
Great opportunity to meet outstanding people each and everyday. My manager was an amazing mentor. The work was fairly easy. Worked with a lot of students on the computer. Wasn't too many coworkers because the facility was a little small, so it was only the manager, and two coworkers including myself. But I got to learn from the work I did while I was there. I was only there for two years because I was a work study student. But it was the best two years of my life. Working on the computer gave me so much knowledge about technology.
Respected and dedicated professional environment with experience providing internal employee development
Disability Support Assistant (Former Employee) – Roxboro NC – September 12, 2014
Worked with individuals with mental and/or physical disabilities; monitored clients progress, testing and assisted wit note-taking. Also used interpersonal communication techniques, created and edited spreadsheets, Word documents and forms
On a typical day, I assist students in developing competency in course work, keep records of tutoring sessions, and complete follow-up forms. My supervisor was a nice lady to work for on most days. There were a few days that I tired to stay out of her way. The hardest part of the job would be not having more hours to work throughout the week. The best part of the job is those moments when students finally grasp the information that I had been helping them to learn.

Bookstore Clerk and Customer Service (Former Employee) – Roxboro, NC – April 25, 2012
The Bookstore was a great place to work and we had our peak time getting the students ready for the next semester. What I learned working at the college, being funded by the State the upgrades of software and other working related tools were out of date. No fault of the college; but State funds. There were not any jobs that I did on a day to day basis that were hard; when you had your co-workers working as a team everything went smooth. What I enjoyed the most was the students, helping them and encouraging them that they can succeed.
