Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Providence, RIAugust 30, 2013
Pros: i really enjoy working with children
Cons: no benefits
A typical day at work is to provide instruction, encourage student progress, and manage the learning environment, enable each child to pursue his/her education as smoothly and completely as possible in the absence of the regular teacher.

I learned to maintain appropriate student behavior in the classroom.

Management offers a great work environment.

Co-workers – more... are very helpful.

The hardest part of the job is that you get a call the day off at 6 o'clock in the morning which gives you little preparation for class.

I enjoy working with the students. – less

Very good and stable job.
Teacher (Current Employee), Providence, RIMarch 25, 2013
Pros: role model, help students
Cons: real estate market went bad
Assist, create and participate in the implementation and development of classroom exercises and skills for the students. Develop innovative lesson plans for multiple classes with the students from various countries and diverse backgrounds. Evaluate student growth performance and record progress routinely. Conduct parent teacher conferences to determine – more... the most successful mode of action for the child to increase his or her classroom performance.
I have always had an excellent relationship with my co workers and administrators. The hardest part of my job was not being able to get to help every student. I work in a very diverse school and a lot of my students come from a low socio economic background. The most enjoyable part of my job is being a role model and know I am making a difference in peoples lives.

During my time practicing Real Estate I successfully worked with homebuyers and sellers to profitably list and sell homes while ensuring positive experiences for my clients. Market homes in the local community by utilizing proven marketing plans. One thing I particularly enjoyed about this job was it gave me a chance to connect with people. I had the opportunity to really challenge myself. – less

I love this job
Seasonal Public Safety Officer (Current Employee), Providence, RIMay 7, 2012
Pros: the benefits
Cons: no work in the summer and the very low pay.
I love working with the kids. I am a people person. This job has great benefits, but there is no room for advancement. There is no work durning the summer months that means there is no pay. I always need to find another seasonal job. The pay is very low so I have to work a second job. This means I am always looking for a job or working more then one – more... partime job. I never have free time to spend with my family. I am missing them growing up. – less

Keep your eyes peeled!
Bus Monitor (Former Employee), Providence, RIApril 7, 2012
Pros: benefits, sick pay, long break to handle what ever needs to be done
Cons: no check on the school vacations
I'd come in early get he children from their stops then drop them off and proceed to the next school finish at about 9am return @ 1:30pm go to the first school wait for the kids to get out drop them at the stops and proceed to the second school and do the same. On the busses if we have children that don't want to follow the rules we would have to write – more... a report out and turn it in to the school and my supervisor... some times I'd get a handicap bus with children that are in wheelchairs, these busses have lifts that help get the chairs on board, after they are on the bus we'd strap them in tight and make sure every thing is right etc... – less
