San Diego Center for Children Academy
Instructional Assistant (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – July 1, 2014
Typical work day is from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday to Friday. I work daily with behavior therapy children in a classroom setting. I help with daily school subjects such as; reading, writing, math, english, science and physical education. There are behavioral incidents that occur, and as a staff or individual we handle the incidents per Safe and Positive Approaches techniques (SPA). I have learned that dealing with the behavioral therapy population no day is the same, and you cannot take any one day personal because therapy is a process and not a magic show. Good overall management. Great atmosphere among staff and everyone is always available to help others. Great team more like a family. The hardest part of the job is trying to leave work at work, and realizing that there is only so much you can do. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with kids, nothing better....
free lunch with the kids, paid holidays.
some difficult days with behaviors. pay and advancement.
