Substitute Teacher
Substitute School Teacher (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZDecember 11, 2014
Pros: being full engaged with each and every child
Cons: it is not always something that is consist
I am a substitute so I do not receive any benefits.

I will be called on the job line for jobs that need to be filled that particular day. I will choose a job accordingly. I do sometime get long term subbing jobs depending on availability. I will most likely take the special education openings before working with the "normal" students. I tend to choose to work in the high school environment teaching life skills to various special need students.

Inspiring Kids
A.V.I.D. Tutor (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZJuly 17, 2014
Such a pleasure to work with 6-8th grade students in a collaborative team environment. I am constantly impressed with these kids...and my co-workers are truly top-notch, committed teachers. The hardest part of the job is that it's just 2 days a week--during the school year...which is not enough for me to live on. The most enjoyable part is when my kids have an "Ah-Ha" moment while working on a problem.

Summers off, Holidays off, weekends off.
Senior Nutritional Service Manager (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZApril 23, 2014
Pros: set schedule, holiday's and weekends off
Cons: inflation rise without a pay raise for over 5 years
Check emails, check voice mails. Respond to both. Begin breakfast preparation. Cashier for breakfast service. Oversee team members, discuss menu, planning and any changes for the day. Start Lunch preparation.
I enjoy all of my team members in the kitchen, I think of them as family. I learned "Leading" is more important than Managing.

The hardest part of my job is knowing that the breakfast and lunch I serve each day is the only meal (s) some students eat each day.

The most enjoyable part of my job is the relationship's built with the students and staff.

Great flexible job while my kids were younger.
Certified Substitute Teacher (Current Employee), Scottsdale, AZFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: flexibility
Cons: low pay and no benefits
Substitute teaching is a challenging yet rewarding job. In this position I manage the students in the classroom, communicate with teachers regarding the plans, work with the administrators at the schools and the school district offices. The hardest part of the job is the students and the most enjoyable part of the job is the students as well!

A chance to be inspiring and educate
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZJune 10, 2013
Pros: different setting, meeting new staff, thinking on my feet.
Cons: mundane. too structured, can't work on my own time and pace.
A productive day at work is when I can be organized and educate. receive respect and recognition for a job well done.

I learned more about being independent.. each class and school has a different system of operation

Management is kept to a minimal. They follow up and continue to facilitate additional work.

My co-workers are helpful and respectful

Is to please my self. I'm my own worst critic.

Pleasing others and receiving feed-back, Inspiring the classes each day Im there.

Chaotic
Sr. Nutritional Service Worker (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMay 6, 2013
Pros: interaction with students.
Cons: deficient in leadership...
No typical days; you given a position & at anytime removed and/or asked to train another person for the position.
I learn how hard it was to work in chaos & that some people thrived on it. The hardest part was being organized & working daily in chaos which made it both difficult and challending.

Fun job
Luch Noon Aide (Former Employee), Scottsdale, AZApril 18, 2013
Pros: good pay, fun job
Cons: extreme tempratures, lack of structure and disipline policies
Good job for a student worker. Very poor security for the kids. Often parents would be allowed to play with the kids. They would also wonder throughout the campus. Assistant principle was great but the principle never did anything and dumped everything on the Assistant principle. The school district was a bit of a bureaucracy meaning the parents had influence over everything all the way up to the superintendent level.

Friendly place to work
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee), Mountainside MS ScottsdaleMarch 29, 2013
Pros: staff eager to learn about technology, very friendly.
Cons: scottsdale school district is cutting jobs..
Scottsdale School District
Friendly work place.
Typical work day:Check my emails, check my work orders, check my voice mails. I would try to resolve issues, if unsuccesful I would escalate the work order to the appropriate Department.
My learning experience was very basic...I would have liked to be able to take a microsoft or cisco class to be more productive.
I am not sure about the management, SUSD turn over is very high.
The hardest part of my job was to try to help the staff with not enough resources...etc.
The most enjoyable part of my job was to help people and staff with their technology issues/needs, but also to train them about technology.
