Nice working culture with staff and students. The job has ups and downs with the ability to help children and families. The most enjoyable time is the relationships formed between the young people and making a difference in their lives.

Place where I could come in and try to add postive life to one kid everyday.
Associate Teacher Counselor (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHSeptember 9, 2016
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.

Stressful as well as rewarding
Associate Teacher Counselor (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHAugust 3, 2015
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.
Pros
yearly salary increase. Some really awesome coworkers
Cons
On call 24/7

Challenging workplace daily and intelligence can be taught.
Team Associate Teacher (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, OHOctober 20, 2014
Positive workplace and plenty of challenges daily. Teaching each day is a developmental experience and hopeful for clients change. The hardest part of the job is expressing to youth that change is possible and taking responsibility for their actions is a good step to their future. The most enjoyable part of the day is having the feeling that competence makes a difference in children and youth life. Management is very supportive and concern about the welfare of the building functions.
Pros
Building trust with children and at risk youth throughout their growth and change.
Cons
The at risk youth are very challenging daily.
