Some days are more trying than others but I'm always excited about coming in and see what each day brings. I have learned that each child has come from different situations some worse than others. I get a long with all teachers and students in the building. The hardest part of the job is meeting the kids where they are, and seeing how you can help. I enjoy kids and seeing the " light bulb" come on in all situations.

Management and colleagues are supportive and willing to do what is necessary to enable students to achieve at high levels. Work day s are stressful but rewarding and the program is great at what it does.
In the clinical department your job is never done. There are always client and family needs,. Seeing the clients progress is very rewarding. Being able to help families remove obstacles in the way of their success/dreams is heart warming. The world of social work/counseling takes a toll and it is hard to maintain a work/personal life balance.

Protecting mental health clients from self injury while learning.
One on One Aide (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – April 12, 2013
Sit in a classroom and teach basic math, reading, and language skills to mental disabled kids. I had a contract to ensure the safety of a client that caused self-injuries during class. My duty was to keep her calm and others around her while using necessary retraints if any disturbance took place. I learned that when you show someone attention their behavior becames sustainable. The director at the time gave me wonderful recommendations and was very pleased of the work I did just for the minimal time I was there. My co-workers were great with assisting me with anything needed. The hardest part of the job was leaving when my contract expired and no more funding was available. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I came there for one person but was able to help them all.
