St Louis Public Schools
Educator (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOJune 26, 2014
Pros: i love working the the students and having a variety of things to do, meeting the parents and making new friends.
Cons: i work only 10.5 months of the year and don't have benefits.
I arrive at work no later than 7:45am to prepare for the day. The work day could consist of working with small groups to managing students for behavior modification. Mandatory meetings are held every Monday. I create lesson plan for small groups. The work day is full. Therefore, I have to be ready to change projects at a moments notice and be able to – more... adjust. I love the variety of work that needs to be done. – less

A typical day at my school is filled with fun, energy and excitement from students and teachers that want to learn and teach.
Lead Secondary Science Teacher (Current Employee), St. Louis Public Schools in St. Louis, MOApril 5, 2014
Pros: freedom to teach in a diverse urban environment
Cons: a high volume of evaluations of student work
A typical day at work is fulfilling, because my students come to school ready to learn and the majority of the teachers are ready to teach. I learn from my students everyday and my goal daily is to make sure I unlock the secrets that society has tried to keep from urban students. The most enjoyable part of my job is training future scientists to be – more... knowledgeable citizenry that is ready to be productive and responsible citizens. The hardest part of my job and motivating underachieving and non-producing urban adolescents. – less

Wonderful Job With Purpose
Program Assistant (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOFebruary 5, 2014
Pros: engaging and inspiring students to reach their dreams
Cons: poor leadership
The ability to bring children examples of the possibilities before them was most rewarding. A typical day was spent identifying potential speakers, scheduling classroom presentations and coordinating special projects. Management was not effective in inspiring staff, and rarely offered any support or encouragement. This came from co-workers who were – more... committed to providing students the best possible experiences. The hardest part of the job was the lack of trust in management. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the wonder and excitement of students who were introduced to people they may not have encountered otherwise,and who represented evidence that dreams, education and hard work pay off. – less

A Typical Day
Family Community Specialist (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOOctober 6, 2013
Pros: working collaboratively as a team effort.
Cons: when children are not picked up on time at dissmissal.
A typical day at St. Louis Public Schools usually consist of following the prioritize daily work assignments that I created for my jobs on a monthly calendar, along with meet and greet the staff, students and parents. Based on the task and the job scope of meeting its deadlines, the job is recorded on its assigned due date. Then, I will work on the – more... assignment in increments prior to the due date in order to meet its deadline. If there is more than one assignment due on that particular date, I will use the same method, so that I will continue to be effective and accurate while turning in the assignments in a timely manner. In the meantime, I will make my building rounds checking on staff and teachers for providing support. – less

multitasking.

Reported to work each day prepared to help my students. Always started classes on time and helped students – more... work to their best ability. Always prepared an informative/interesting bell-ringer to get each class off to a productive beginning.

The most enjoyable part of the job has been the experience of meeting new co-workers and being able to reach most of my students' educational needs. – less
