Good summer job to have before student teaching
Unit Leader (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHOctober 29, 2014
Pros: work with a variety of ages/abilities
Cons: low pay, not enough behavioral training
I am grateful for the experience I had working here. It was one of the hardest summers of my life but it solidified my belief that I am in the right field. I worked here before taking a lot of my SPED classes so I did not have much experience working with children/teens with special needs. There were a lot of challenges but I now know how to handle – more... those better. My co-workers were mainly other college students, most of whom were also in an educational field or something related. I loved seeing my campers make strides and learn new things, it was very rewarding and gave my work purpose. – less

Teacher Aide (Former Employee), Lubbock, TXSeptember 9, 2014
On a regular day at work is making sure everything is disinfected and kept cleaning, making sure all the kids are feed around snack time and making sure they wash their hands, play games and do fun activities, basically monitor the kids. There nothing really hard about this job, if you love working with kids shouldn't have a problem.

A day in Stepping Stones
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee), Alexandria, MNMarch 8, 2014
I was a Teacher's Aide at Stepping Stones. I worked mainly with toddlers.

I have learned a lot about children, how to take care of multiple children at once.

I enjoyed my co workers, as they all tried very hard and cared about the children, as I did.

Management tried to do a good job, but the whole business was out of control. Business ethics were – more... extremely poor, and that was the hardest part about working there. I saw a lot of things that were not safe or sanitary, and was very uncomfortable being a part of that.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the children. Getting to watch them grow. They were so much fun! – less

Daycare Assistant (Current Employee), Sunderland, MDOctober 22, 2013
Pros: free food
Cons: some staff
A typical day at work would be giving the kids their meals/snacks cleaning bathrooms,sinks,classrooms,kitchen, and counters. I learn something new everyday from the kids and staff. Normally my job will let me go early because i get everything done. There is not really a hard part of my job. I love what I do so it is easy to me. The most enjoyable part – more... of my job is spending one on one time with the kids and talking to parents about how their child's day was. – less

Teacher (Current Employee), Copperas Cove, TXMarch 6, 2013
Pros: i love kids and great working environment.
Cons: healthcare and my hours (12:15-6:00).
When I first I go into the 18 month old room for naptime, and during that time I am watching them sleep and I have time to get my activities together for my after school classroom. When I leave the 18 month old room I go to my classroom and start getting snack ready for my kids and clean before I go pick them up from school. When I get back from picking – more... them up, the kids come in the classroom, put their stuff away, sit in their assigned seats and eat snack. After snack, I help the kids with their homework. After homework is done, we start doing our activities/crafts for the day.
I have learned that kids are very sweet and love to learn new things and I enjoy teaching them new crafts and new ways of thinking about things. I love my manager, she is very smart, I've learned a lot from her and I love how she compliments me on how good I'm doing. My co-workers are very nice and funny. The hardest part of my job is probably naptime with the 18 month olds, sometimes they wake up crying and they get pretty loud and I have to calm them down before they wake all of the other kids up. I mostly enjoy my kids asking questions and when I show them something new they look so amazed. – less

Weekend Staff Relief (Current Employee), San Francisco, CAOctober 30, 2012
Pros: it is a great part-time job. i am helping my community.
Cons: no health benefits, low pay, i need full-time work.
I arrive and check in with staff about the clients that reside there. I tend to the administrative duties. I drug test and witness these women in recovery. Working there enlarges my capacity for compassion. I am learning about, and inspired by women recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. The hardest part of the job is when someone relapses, and – more... I have to get them out of the house in fifteen minutes. The most enjoyable part of the job is hearing about their personal triumphs. – less
