One thing I enjoy most about working as a guest teacher is the chance to experience a variety of working environments, interact with a diverse group of students, and be introduced to teachers with varying experience levels. All of this serves to make me a more competent and better-rounded instructor.

If you love teaching young children, the petty mindedness of the administration does not matter.
By default, you stare hope in the face all day long when working with children.

Working for a school district has some perks since it is somewhat flexible with my school schedule. I will say this, the pay schedule is ridiculous since I get pay on the first week of the next month. In other words, I don't get paid every two weeks nor at the end of the month that I worked. Instead I get paid during the following month which is a bit of a nuisance. Something else that I will mention are the hours, I would relish if I would be given more than four hours but that's just the way it is with a school system.

I was happy that I got the job, and I grew attachment to the staff and students. I would wake up early in the morning just to get to work on time. I open the gates and turned off the alarm and check for any vandalism

The application process is lengthy and communication with the district office is sometimes confusing but once you're in the door, they're are plenty opportunities for advancement.

At Hacienda La Puente Teachers and staff work together. School has weekly meetings and they all follow a team plan in order to help the school be efficient. Working with the Special Ed Department was a great experience. Parents were usually part of their children's education and we had great report.

Nice place to substitute at. Sometimes it can be hard to find jobs due to too many substitutes and not enough teachers out. Most of the office assistants are nice to you.

I love to work with the kids and parents on a daily. I learned to manage time properly and work under pressure here. My ability to multi-task has improved greatly. The hardest part of the job is maintaining focused when everyone is needed from you. The most enjoyable part of the job is that it's so rewarding to see the kids grow from your efforts.
Pros
I love working with the kids and parents and the help I provide.
Cons
Having to deal with unnecessary attitudes.

What I enjoyed and appreciated the most working in this district was the collaborative teaching staff. The staff and department meetings were always very productive and kept me inspired to keep or modify what I have implemented in my classroom, whether that be academically or classroom management.

Lesson plans, conducting hand on experience for students, cooking labs, I was in charge of curriculum and maintaining and observing that students were learning from my instruction. I learn that in working around people that see you clear vision is what leads to success. I had a great management staff. Culture is beautiful and goes hand and hand with teaching and learning its a journey worth taking. Waiting for something to get fix. My students seeing success. I work their for 9 years.
Pros
Working with people that love the industry
Cons
Healthcare

As an instructional aide in the HLPUSD, I realized that a part-time aide I was exposed to supplying teaching staff assistance as well as assisting special educational students with both physical and behavioral needs. After getting phone calls to learn of new assignments I was given throughout the district, eventually I maintained steady assignments at one particular site. This particular site serviced students plagued with emotional and behavioral problems, deemed unfit for regulatory public school sites. The students range in difficulty yet collectively displayed great interest in the positive assistance I provided. This welcomed embrace allowed me to see the wide this position was more enriching than I had expected.
Pros
Duality in job site and assignments.
Cons
Part-time salary, no benefits, not guaranteed work the following school terms.
