Peer Counselor Adviser (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – January 27, 2016
Working on campus in the EOPS office was key to me getting back to school after 30 plus years. Working to help students get the added help needed to stay in school was very satisfying. Of course when a student didn't do their part and got dropped or denied for the program it was difficult to give them that information.

Internship History (Former Employee) – Victorville – August 15, 2014
The reason that I did the teaching assistant was to help my fellow classmates understand the material because sometimes if a fellow student explains how they learned the material the other classmates find it easier to retain it. It was also to challenge myself and to get out of my comfort zone I am shy and when helping my Professor I had to speak in front of everyone it frightened me but I still did it and my fellow classmates understood the material when I explained it to them, I love to help others and it helped me to get rid of my fears of speaking in public. I got along with everyone the hardest part was when their were some students who tried to find the easy way to pass the class well not on my watch they did not get off the hook that easily that was the only difficulty because being two people who are offering themselves to help them why couldn't they just come up and say hey I do not understand this well I would have found a different method to teach them in order for them to understand we all learn differently.
able to speak publicly, communication skills, organized
finding a method to detail with complicated students
Productive and fun workplace where we can work together and have fun

Switchboard Substitute (Former Employee) – Victorville, CA – April 21, 2014
As a switchboard operator, answering phones, directing calls, performing postage duties for incoming and outgoing mail, communication with instructors and students outlined most of my days. Management was great and I really enjoyed working with and for them. Co-workers were fun and made my time there quite an experience. I had to be creative in finding things to do during down time. The best part of the job was interacting with the instructors, students, and my co-workers.
