At times a very productive, but laid back work enviroment
1:1 Instructional Aide, Thomas Edison Central 6 Middle School - June 18, 2015
I feel the concern for better instruction at this school could be taken more seriously.
The hardest part of this job was the behavior of many students. I was a 1:1 instructional assistant so I took the background when in classrooms as to not step on the lead teachers toes. I just worried about my responsibilities with the student I was paired with. At times I felt the students were not reprimanded for some of these behaviors and as a result they walked all over teachers.
I know this would not be the case working with much younger students as to why I am interesting in this position, not that I don't think I am capable of managing any classroom if given the opportunity.
