Great job, good pay, but short staffed. Paid benefits for employees. Very helpful staff and employees. Great about vacation and time off if given in a reasonable time.Possible long hours, if under staffed. Most of the time they were under staffed.

I learned that children are precious no matter the behavior or environment that they are in. I am always excited about being able to teach each children that I have and help them learn what is needed from day to day to get them to the next level in their life.

working at sheltering arms is an ok job if you are fine with dealing with a lot of workplace drama. the management does not care for their teacher and the center director can come off as chauvinistic. the pay is terrible along with the benefits.

A typical day at work is fun and fast pace. Working for Sheltering Arms, you will never have a dull moment. I've had so much types of training from CPR, Fire and Safety, Bright from The Start, Read Right from The Start, etc. The management team is pretty good, there are some defaults, but it's not major. My co-workers are amazing, fun loving and helpful. They make the day go by so fast and they all treat the children, parents, and management team the same. The hardest part of the job is having full participation from parents on different activities, but we still have to consider that not everyone has the same income. The most enjoyable part of my job is making life long connections with each student and parent. Having a child run up to you and give you the biggest hug then immediately want to tell you everything that has happened to them makes your heart melt. The child trusts you and feels comfortable enough. I love that feeling.

Great Job, however it is underpaid for the work that is required. Management is supportive to growth with certain people.The most difficult part of the job is balancing the the treatment model, with agency requirements. There is a lot of travel in this job and sometimes can be one of the most difficult aspects of the job
Teacher (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 4, 2015
Productive, creative work place, benefits, a place that cares about the children. I am a lead infant teacher so sometime, it does get hectic, trying to take care of everyone's needs and want. I am thankful for the opportunity to be employed there.
Lunch, great benefits, no traffic to and from work.

Overworked and underpaid but working with the kids are the best!
Case Planner (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – April 25, 2015
A Typical day at work includes engaging with youth at risk ages 14 to 21. Advocating for youth in court, school and the community. I am also responsible for completing reports and notes about youth progress. My co-workers and I work as a team for the most part but it can be stressful and unproductive when everyone isn't on the same page. The Hardest part about the job is working with the unprofessional staff that don't work together as a team to get the job done, The most fruitful part of the job is my relationship that I have with my youth, I have been able to sustain a healthy and productive relationship with them. As a result of my positive relationship with them most of my youth reach or on track to hit personal goals,
