ParaEducator (Current Employee) – Corona, CA Norco CA – June 16, 2018
At work I would help other aids gather children either by picking them up from the bus in the morning or getting them from drop off. We instruct them on what they need to do in the classroom and how they should behave for the day, or else consequences. By the end of the day if all went well we would reward them and take them to their destination to go home.
Para Educator (Current Employee) – Norco, CA Eastvale, CA and Corona, CA – August 3, 2018
The position I hold is an on-call substitute ParaEducator. This work provides me with experience in different areas of special education. This position would be great for those that need a flexible schedule or those considering a teaching degree. The pay is above minimum wage. However, I do not recommend the position for a long term solution if you are dependent on that income. This position does not pay for spring break, Thanksgiving break, Winter break, and Summer break. You are allowed a few sick days but otherwise if you do not work you do not get paid. Permanent positions are applied for on the website but are difficult to come by.
Flexible schedule, Pay above minimum wage, experience in special education field, great hours and no weekend work
No pay during breaks and holidays, hard to place a permanent position, Students may be difficult to deal with if not accustomed to work
Lots of variety in classes so its not boring.I love teaching.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Norco, CA – May 29, 2018
I have tutored at Continuation Schools, High Scools, Grade Schools, Community Colleges and I have taught classes at all of them. I enjoy teaching so it was all good. I enjoy one to one best and all phases of math. I enjoyteaching students to love math not hate it and when they find ou how easy it is they do love it. That rewards me more than money. The 0 most enjoyable part of the day when eyes light up. Its a wonderful day at school when teaching one studemt to love math. Sometimes the supervisors dont even care whether you love what you do or not. I got written up in the Riverside district and wasnt allowed to explain my side. Corona never did that to me. Thats why I stayed in Corona. I once had to put a 14 year old boy on the toilet from his wheel chair. I am 5' 2' and 115 pounds. It was tough. The teacher let all the aides go early so she used me as the aide. Worst day at school.
you could always take of a day if needed without reprocussions.
You didnt work enough in a year because of all the vacatioons. Easter Christmas and Summer Vacation.
School Counselor (Current Employee) – Corona, CA – May 8, 2018
Unfortunately, I've had the pleasure of working in other school districts and I can say that Corona Norco School District is a leader from Top to bottom off the educational organization. I love and appreciate the way they service their clients/communities and how they protect and respect their staff/employees. It is a pleasure to work for such a great district and a blessing to meet and work with so many amazing educators in this district.
Receptionist (Former Employee) – Norco, CA – February 28, 2018
I thought it was great to work for the District. Helped Kids all day. The staff was always nice. The only thing I didn't like was that it was temporary work and that I would go long times with no work due to the vacations, but if you're not stressed for money and like helping kids learn, then this is a great place to work at.
Help kids, good pay
part time, took months to get permanent positions, long periods of no work
Substitute Teacher K-12 (Current Employee) – Corona, CA – January 17, 2018
I enjoy working as a substitute teacher for CNUSD. The teachers provide great instruction, have excellent routines in place for their students. I feel like I'm able to make a seamless educational experience for students in the absence of their teacher.
AVID Tutor (Former Employee) – Eastvale, CA – June 15, 2017
A typical day at work followed a repetitive schedule. I learned to grade student's papers as fairly as possible. I learned to take initiative as an AVID tutor. I learned to interact positively with junior high school students. The most difficult part of my job was having to discipline junior high students and grading papers for each class. The most enjoyable part was guiding the tutorial process.
lunch break, college field trips
rotating schedule is difficult to follow and rmember

Instructional Assistant II (Current Employee) – Corona, CA – September 5, 2015
a typical day at work is we get students off the bus , we do have students with aggressive issues and make sure they are guarded at all times . have them independently take their things out and put them away. they get sent to the bathroom and start breakfast after that. they eat with their peers so they can learn to be at a table setting. then the academics start for example the calendar, days of the week, months of the year. then we go on campus to walk I am always aware to count them and see if we are all together and make sure they are in their best behaivor. I assist them during their lunch and through out the rest of the day and put them on the bus to be sent home. what I have leaned is to always be observant and make sure I am aware of my surroundings. my co- workers are a team we always work in a group of two that way someone is there at all times. the hardest part of my job would be when the students move on to another school. the most enjoyable part of my job is when they accomplish something that they can do independently and learned what I taught them and proving people wrong when they did not think the student would accomplish it.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Norco, CA – October 10, 2014
A typical day at work is showing up at the school office to get the room key, going to the classroom, reading the master teacher's lesson plans, picking up the students at the blacktop, bringing them to class, and teaching the lessons. At the end of the day I dismiss the students, write a detailed note about the day for the master teacher to read, lock the room and return the key to the office. I learned that substitute teaching is a fun and exciting profession that offers new things each time I teach. Every classroom is different, every school is different, every student is different. The hardest part about the job is adjusting to the flow of the classroom. Students get into a rhythm and feel comfortable following their daily procedures. As a substitute in a new environment I try to adapt to that particular class and continue with the flow the students are used to. I want students to feel as comfortable as they can while a new teacher is there. The most enjoyable part of the job is the students. I really enjoy seeing their faces when they learn or understand something. They gain a confidence about themselves that is very fulfilling to an educator. When they are learning it means I am doing my job correctly.
Teaching and guiding young minds
No health benefits, not an everyday job, not a permanent job
A reputable school district run by intelligent people
TEACHER /ADMINISTRATOR DESIGNEE (Current Employee) – Corona, CA – March 9, 2014
CNUSD is one of the best school districts I have ever worked for in my 20 year career as an educator. During the strenuous budget cuts that affected so many California school districts, CNUSD remained solvent and only released a minimum amount of non-tenured teachers
very pro teachers, staff, parents and most of all students
diffiuclty with advanccement to mangment positions
Substitute Instructor (Former Employee) – corona,ca – January 9, 2014
Typical day as a Substitute was very clear and precise. Assignments were given and time management was the main goal for students completing all the tasks for the time given
I learned that all students are on different levels of absorbing information and putting it to use
As far as management goes, it is solely based on managing a classroom of 30 plus students per period or session The hardest part of the job would be to keep the students attention and making sure they stay on track with work. Gaining respect and confidence in the students was crucial for success Most fun part would be seeing the students improve in areas where they had trouble with and giving them the confidence to succeed
