Senior ABA Instructor (Current Employee), Rockville, MD – March 20, 2013
Pros: long breaks, short school days on wednesdays
Cons: low salary, long commute
A typical day at The Ivymount School consisted of working with students to increase their quality of living. Each day I would run academic programs as well as collect data to ensure progress was being made. Each quarter I was responsible for conducting quarterly documentation reviews in which I would audit other co-worker's proper use of documentation. While working at Ivymount I learned about being a special educator, such as managing classroom behaviors as well as making proper judgement calls in the moment. I also learned how to work as a team, communicating professionally and constructively. My co-workers consisted of a group of goal-oriented individuals working together to achieve progress in the lives of their students. The hardest part of the job was the constant physical activity. Sometimes being on your feet all day can be tiring! However, it's all worth while knowing that you're making a difference in a child's life and seeing the smiles on their faces as they walk in the door.
