Things have changed since a new administration came in.
Contracted Mental HealthProvider (Former Employee) – various – June 2, 2017
RUSD has changed administration and consequently has become a difficult place to work. I worked under a contract so I did not have any benefits. I worked in all grades, With weak leadership in the district, it has trickled down to the schools. There is way too much emphasis on the money aspect at the detriment of the students.
People in the schools are generally great.
The district has poor leadership and are out of touch with the population.
A great place to work with dedicated employees who focus on student success
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Rowland Heights, CA – May 9, 2017

INTRUCTIONAL ASSISTANT/BILIGUAL (Former Employee) – Rowland Heights, CA – May 2, 2017
Assisted the teacher with the bilingual (Spanish) students in class. Helped with their reading and math. I worked with Kinder Gardeners, Third grade and Fifth grade students. The hardest part of the job was that it was only part-time.
Math Teacher (Former Employee) – Rowland Heights, CA – June 15, 2015
I was hired over a week after school starts (at no fault of my own. I applied, got interviewed and followed the hiring process perfectly), then transferred to another school within the first month, and was let go before first semester ends.
I help the kids with their studies. If they have any questions, they can ask me. I help the teacher make the classroom flow a bit better. I learned how to be a hard worker and be patient with students and people. My co-workers are very helpful and I learned how to work as a team. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the parents because they are frustrated with their kids but I tell them they are trying their best. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing results with the kids.
Career Vocational Assistant (Current Employee) – Rowland Heights, CA – July 16, 2014
My day is divided in three parts. Prepare students for work. Take to work. Return from work and write reviews and communicate with teacher about our day at work. I am still learning about student disabilities and what they are able to learn and not learn. The hardest part of my job is handling multiple levels of ability and learning to improvise at the very moment it is needed. The most enjoyable part of my job is the satisfaction I get when I see what I taught the student was worthwhile.
SLPA Intern (Former Employee) – Rowland Heights, CA – October 20, 2013
I worked as an unpaid SLPA intern and I believe that the experience I got was amazing. The SLP's that I worked with were very kind and encouraging in helping me succeed in what I needed to know in my field.
Instructional Assistant (Former Employee) – Nogales High School – August 17, 2012
A typical day at work was trying to keep the special needs kids calm and teach them like a regular student at the school. I learned that not every kid is the same. My co-workers were wonderful, they all helped me out on the first day of work. The hardest part of the job was trying to teach a student something when he or she didn't want to at that exact moment. Most of all the most enjoyable part of the day was getting to work with the kids. They were all so much fun.
I liked this job very busy loved working with the staff and hrs were great.

Classroom teacher (Former Employee) – Rowland Heights, CA – April 30, 2012
My teaching day was spent working with students who had mild learning disabilities. I taught them skills to become better readers and writers. I also retaught information from general education classes including English, world history, U.S. history, American government, economics, earth science, biology, and assorted electives. Sometimes, I went to the general education classroom to work with special education students directly in the classroom setting.
