Healthy and professional atmosphere at school.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) –  Winchester, VAAugust 8, 2014
Working in daniel morgan school(winchester public schools) was exciting yet challenging. I usually arrived at school around 7:45, taught 2-3 blocks and had 1 "free"block. I enjoyed doing research during this time. Sometimes I helped to organize students during lunch break. I would leave school around 2:30. I have learned that being precise and disciplined helps you to achieve your goals and respect of students and colleagues. The hardest part of the job for me was not being too strict. The most rewarding thing is students' attention and knowledge that they receive.
Pros
the bright smiles on students faces.
Cons
too much technology.

I liked the work
Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) –  Winchester, VAJanuary 22, 2014
A typical day was helping children with their reading. I would also help with other classes and did lunch duty.
I learned that working as teacher assistant was not that easy. My co-worker were not really helpful and they all had clicks. This was the hardest part of the job. I enjoyed working with the children.
Pros
i like working 9 months and get off the three months.
Cons
the people i worked with.

Excellent place to work
Maintenance worker (Former Employee) –  Winchester, VAJanuary 9, 2014
40 hours a week, Monday-Friday, 2 weeks of vacation, they take care of your very well. My co-workers are very experienced in what they are doing, and don't mind answering questions or offering a hand if I am doing something wrong. I enjoy working outside, the only hard part would be, when its 110 degrees, and you are outside in steel toe boots, long pants, and a t-shirt, and you are weed wacking, but it is part of the job that I enjoy.
Pros
great co-workers, good pay, 2 weeks vacation
