Productive interesting workplace
Teacher's Assistant (Former Employee) –  Pasco, WAJuly 27, 2014
Everyday consisted of attendance, health checks, learning activities as well as fun outdoor activities, lunch and snack time.
I learned that although children may have their challenges it is a great oppotunity to help shape the new generation and possibly help a child to learn new skills.
Co-workers had to rely on one another because of the ratio from teachers to students which made it a necessity to make sure the lesson plans for the day went smoothly.
The hardest part of the job was getting the children to be able to like and respect you as an adult because as most things it would take some time
The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to notice the differences amongst the children who were advancing in learning new things and activities.
Pros
learning new activities with children
Cons
no breaks, healthcare

Mental Health/Disability Specialist (Former Employee) –  Sunnyside, WAApril 2, 2013
My day consisted of multiple tasks and responsibilities. I coordinated services through the main office with the assistance of 3 specialist on site with me.

Daily paperwork, filing, in or out with correspendence, phone call assistance, walk-in services, atttended meeting, and heavy usage of computer. Prepared reports, reviewed all incoming documentation, worked on projects individually or with a team, provided training's to staff & parents, and frequently met with community partners.

I enjoyed working with children, staff, parents, & community partners. Knowing I was able to work with a variety of people and children to make a difference in lives was most heart warming to me. I am very fortunate that I learned all my skills and knowledge through my years with WSMC. The agency encouraged self improvement as well as education enhancement. I didn't find the job difficult but at times it was very busy and short handed of staff.

Most enjoyable was knowing I believe I did a great job!
Pros
multiple. flexibility, valued family, offered self improvement plans
Cons
i would have to say some days were very long (12 hrs) with no breaks...
