Watching children grow and learn
Director (Former Employee), Corinth, TXMay 22, 2014
Pros: working with children
Cons: long hours
I was the director for a childcare facility that was licensed for 215 children, but maintained an enrollment of 147 children. The area the school was in had 6 other child care facilities within a 5 mile radius; three of which were owned by the same company. We each had different things to offer including the price. At the end of my employment, I opened – more... a brand new facility, hiring all the employees and recruiting all the enrollment for the school. The first week we opened we had 21 children enrolled. By the third month we had 85 and by 6 months we had 134. I was responsible for overseeing all the daily work for each classroom as well as the administrative work that took place behind the scenes. I planned events for the school and parties for the children and their families to enjoy outside of normal business hours. I was a member of the chamber of commerce and hosted the meetings at the school. The hardest part was the time that it took to run the school. I hadyoung children and it was hard making that sacrifice to be at the school before it opened and then to stay till after it closed making sure that everything was in order for the next day. – less

Understanding parents and great kids. Fun coworkers.
Lead Teacher (Current Employee), Grapevine, TXFebruary 7, 2014
Pros: work with my schedule
Cons: inconsistant
I work alone in a pre-k classroom. I open my room, spend the whole day doing curriculum among other activities with the children, and I close my room down for the night. I have learned how to be communicative with my coworkers and managers in an effort to better the company. The hardest part of the job is running a full classroom on my own but it is – more... also the most rewarding. My most enjoyable part of the job is the appreciation I receive from parents for my hard work. – less

Productive, fun and entertaining
Teacher (Current Employee), Grand Prairie, TX.January 5, 2014
Pros: educating children
Cons: children drop-ins (a child is dropped in for only a day)
Teach and interact with children, prepare lesson plans and implement classroom activities. Maintain a clean and safe work environment. Work well with co-workers; open communication with co-workers and parents. Hardest part of the job is wondering if you have impacted a child daily. Most enjoyable part of the job is working with children; the things – more... they say and do, I learn from them as well. – less

Campus Director/Mentor Director (Former Employee), Flower Mound, TXJuly 9, 2013
I had a great time working at Writ Process. The president and CEO made sure that they kept it upbeat in the office because it was a stressful job with customers. The hardest thing about my job was speaking with customers that we took money from that could not afford the money to be taken. I enjoyed the job and the experience of Alaska.

Assistant Director (Former Employee), Coppell,TxJanuary 5, 2013
Pros: free lunches
A typical day would be handling the data on the computer. Making sure everything is up to date. Welcome customers with a friendly face. Lead a team of highly motivated and self motivated. The hardest part of the job was seeing unsatisfied customers but at the end of the day there needs were met. The most enjoyable part was seeing each and every one – more... of my team leaders have a such a happy confident look on there face when they completed the job properly. Hard work pays off. – less

Assistant Teacher, work (Current Employee), Mansfield, TXMarch 21, 2012
Pros: working with the wonder kids.
Cons: sometimes the schedule can change last minute.
My job is a fun and relaxing place to work. I love my kids and they love me. We get to do alot of fun activities and get to teach them alot of new things that they don't know.We sing songs like the ABC's, Itsy Bitsy Spider, etc. They are very laid when it comes to scheduling. They will work with you and especially if you are attending school.
