Children Center Clerk (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 18, 2017
I love helping families in the enrollment process, and being able to help a family to get a job, or go to school by having a place to leave their children safe and secure at the children center that I worked at. I learned that working with different cultures is fun, and a learning experience. The hardest part of my job, is not being able to enrolled a child because of the process, and guidelines of the program. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting different people every day, and learned something new all the time, and having my second family at work environment.
Learning something new all the time, trainings and new programs
Helping kids with physical and mental disabilities is so rewarding
Special Education Para Educator (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – April 2, 2017
A typical day is showing kids successful learning strategies that they can use to be successful in school despite learning, or behavior challenges. I help prompt and model procedures in otherwise frustrating tasks such as reading, matching and placing objects. Other staff are supportive and helpful to help students be successful. The hardest part of the job is when a student decides he isn't good enough to be successful. The most enjoyable part is convincing a student to do the best job possible and seeing them graduate.
