The staff of Student Support Services mad the job as exciting as it could get. there was never a dull moment. There was no hard part about working with SSS because i love interacting with people and being a someone for others to look up to.
A typical day for the referee would be to set up the gym or field for the upcoming games. Refereeing the games and keeping score. after the games are over make sure everything is put back to normal for the others utilizing the gym. I learned to be calm in rough situations. With refereeing many people will criticize you but you have to have a short term memory and move forward so emotions to get involved for the game. Management and co-workers were fair. The hardest part of the job would be having to deal with a hostile environment continuously. The enjoyable part was that I am able to be active while working.
Assistant Softball Coach/Teaching Assistant PE (Former Employee) – Alpine, TX – June 1, 2012
I taught and organized lesson plans for wellness & fitness classes for four semesters and advanced weight training classes for two semesters. It taught me how to manage a classroom, organize, create teacher made tests, lesson plans, etc.
As a coach, I managed a team of 18 players for two years. I helped schedule, manage and organize practices every day. I hosted 6am workouts and learned each person has their own personality and how to deal with each separately.
The hardest part of the job was the lack of communication from the head of the department to his coaching staff. He rarely informed us when meetings were happening and then criticized us if we missed the meeting.
The most enjoyable part of the job was coaching the sport that I have been playing all my life, showing my passion for it to the softball team in hopes that they can use my energy and love for the game to bring it out of themselves every practice and game.
