Progessive and A great place to empower change within the Department of Education
Financial Operations Consultant (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – May 5, 2015
On arrival, I would first conduct basic administrative work. Answering phone calls, making copies, answering emails in timely fashion. Then I would contact superintendents and principals of the many Title 1 school districts in the city to see if they were inline with the grant protocol set by the chancellor.
Management was very supportive as well as instructive. they were concise in what the asked for which made my job a lot easier to manage myself.
The hardest part of the job was juggling the info and analytics of many schools from all 32 districts within the city at once. There was a lot of moving pieces to the different tasks I conducted like progress reports and analysis of finances within there respective schools. As time progressed, I became more acclimated to the process and the confidence in my work showed.
The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that because of our analysis and careful considerations in school reports, underprivileged students in poverty stricken communities were getting the best materials and grants they needed in order to progress and succeed with there studies.
