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 – more... 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. – less
