Special Education Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Anoka, MN – November 15, 2017
Absolutely loved everything about this job! Coworkers, management, and students! I coached, tutored, and was a special education paraprofessional. I would have never left if I didn’t get relocated for family issues to Texas. Great benefits package!!
I was a substitute para educator. It was a great way to work on the days that fit my busy schedule of being a stay at home mom. The school district made sure I attended a seminar explaining what the job would consist of. I typically worked with special education children at the school my children attended. I loved it and really enjoyed the kids and the teachers. The teachers were very helpful when I had questions.
Fourth Grade Classroom TeacherAnoka County (Former Employee) – Anoka, MN – August 19, 2017
Student taught in 3rd grade, 5th grade, 3months 6thgrade, 4th grade taught several years. Enjoyed great supportive staff and principle. Organized several educational field trips each year which were very enriching for the children and teachers. Every year was a new challenge to find new and exciting acctivities for the children to compliment the curriculum. .The background of the students were bluecollar. The most enjoyable part of the was watching the children grow and advance. The hardest part of the job was leaving. Start date Jan 72.
The people i worked with were all extremely focused and welcoming. The job is straightforward with little stress. Its the type of job you can go home at the end of the day and not still be stressed about work.
Greeting parents and students for swim lessons. The manger of the pool when I was hired was great to work for and really enjoyed the job and teaching children and families to be safe in the water. The hardest part of the job is showing parents that their children didn't pass the class. Every parent wants their child to move up even when the child does not quite meet the requirement for the next level
The young students I worked with were eager and dedicated. The reading comprehension program I offered to 3rd and 4th graders required work in spelling, reading games, strategy and patience. Our manager was professional, caring and astute. My co-workers were diligent and committed to excellence. The most difficult part of the job was making sure they were attaining what they needed. They accomplished a good amount of work and that was my happiness. The most enjoyable was watching their grades improve along with their attitudes.
Child Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Anoka, MN – June 5, 2015
I work with children most days its dealing with students with special needs or children who have proven to be difficult. I have had the pleasure of learning skills to calm a situation and redirect. I have learned to work as a stronger team. I enjoy the fun and caring atmosphere provided. I enjoy the variety of coworkers I get to work with from young to old. The biggest struggle I would say would be to let go and not worry so much.
Substitute Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Various schools within the district – June 4, 2015
I was a substitute paraprofessional. I worked with the teachers to help the students in the special education department. I would work with a group of children or one on one depending what was needed. I worked with a variety of ages, but I especially enjoyed the preschool children. I would play with them, get them ready for lunch, or gather them up for music time, I would read to them, and get them ready to go home.
