Special Education Teacher (Current Employee), San Jose, CAApril 1, 2015
Pros: Good salary, good location
Cons: Poor leadership and support
Working for the County was a nightmare. I was never given an evaluation and had three different administrators in my one year working there. Things are disorganized and expect very little help if you need it. Everyone passes the buck here.

I learned a lot about child development of special children since I started working in SCCOE.
Paraeducator (Current Employee), San Jose, CAMarch 1, 2014
Pros: teachers share their knowledge and expertise on how to educate children with special disabilities.
Cons: short break periods.
My work in SCCOE is very challenging, yet rewarding.
A typical day at work involves, either home visits or attending a center-based class for visually impaired children.
Everyday is a learning experience dealing with the special students
and their parents/guardians.
Likewise challenging, is working with Teachers/Specialist and co-Paraeducators.
The hardest part of the job is having three home visits a day, which means driving from one place to another, with a window of just 30 minutes.
The most enjoyable part of my job is working with the children and parents, especially, when you are able to establish rapport with them,
implementing the plan and programs seems easier.

while working for the Santa Clara County of education I taught a group of students who where diagnosed with autism. I helped the kids with basic skills in math, puzzles and reading. The most hardest part of the job was calming the kids in times of anger issues; however the most enjoyable part of job was watching smiles on there faces as they completed there skills was well rewarding

Special Ed. Aide (Former Employee), San Jose, CaAugust 29, 2012
Pros: working with children off all ages, able to help improve their lives.
I worked with Mentally/Physically handicapped children. We worked on Personal Grooming, self-help skills. I helped they work on education goals to obtain communication skills through computer programs, Audio switch and touch pads.

At times I worked with Medically Fragile children that needed Tube feeding, oral/trachea suctioning,had seizure protocols and required constant positioning throughout the day to keep muscles and bones stretched and in alligment.
