Pros: great hours and having all the school days holidays off.
Cons: no steady directors on site, 7 within the 5 years i was there.
A typical day at work was checking the phone to see who was out, then do classroom coverage, announce bussing when the children arrived. Take care of classroom and office supplies weekly, do clinicians schedules on the computer and their attendance. Add new students to the Board of Education Pre-K Rider System, Do lunch count and order lunches for the students. Take chldrens daily attendance and give out their breakfast. Do requisitions for supplies and give petty cash when needed. Do the expenditures report allocating to $ 600.00. Give training to new clinicians on the computer for the Education Tracking System, Process clinicians timesheets and fax to the proper agencies.
I learned how to run a program and teaching a director how to run the program was not an easy task per say.
Management wasn't always available as they were busy with other things or out of the building. When two office staff members retired the new director thought he can sit back and be on his iphone letting me handle all the work with no assistance. He turned to be angry unsensitive and unprofessional yelling and using fowl language to staff.
Co-worker were great, they were team players when it came to the children.
The hardes part of the day was when we had to call the ambulance for one of the disable children.
The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the children smile or accomplish something that they were working on. So when the day went by smoothly with no emergencies it was an awesome feeling which meant all the children were find.
