Teacher Asst East Mountain School
Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) – Hillsborough, NJ – July 6, 2018
The students kept me coming back. Beyond that, pay was low, no benefits. Mostly they just wanted me to stand in a hallway and try to talk the kids into going back to their classes. When kids get stressed or angry they walk out of classes. Teachers let them go, not their problem. If you’re out in the hallway they become your problem. The staff is very, very separated into cliques. They aren’t helpful when another staff is having a problem. If it’s not happening to them they are blind to it. Even tho I loved the kids at EMS, the culture and the lack of appropriate pay and benefits caused me to seek other opportunities.
