Administrator in New York, NY
on July 16, 2021
I have worked in several schools and my experiences varied based on the school culture and leadership vision. When culture was poor and leadership was weak, I moved on.
1 Paraprofessional in Bronx, NY
on July 21, 2021
Stay as substitute paraprofessional if you don’t have a college degree or you are not sure if you want to become permeant . Compensation will decrease becoming permanent. Unless you have a degree and you have to work a full year to receive increase pay. You have the freedom to pick and choose what school you want to work in as a sub para. This gives you the opportunity to focus on the career you really want. Don’t allow admin to force you to become a permanent substitute para. Please read your union contract and learn Special education law to protect yourself. Come in and do your job and stay to yourself. This is not the type of position you stay for the long haul. It is a stepping stone

Crisis Management Teachers Assistant (Para-professional) in Bronx, NY
on July 12, 2021
I clock in and report to my morning post. The day is a normal school day. Most teachers have classroom management and follow a schedule. We are responsible to keep the attendance sheets, behavior sheets, and monitor each Childs behavior according to their EIPs
Special Education Teacher in Queens, NY
on July 7, 2021
I have worked as a special education teacher for the New York City public school system for 14 years. This work is not easy and you will often feel unsupported by the "system." This is the largest school system in the nation with over a million students. Every district is different, and some have excellent leadership, while others struggle for years. One of the better parts of the job are that we have a fantastic union which has worked hard to ensure our benefits and job security. If you are unhappy with your school, you are able to apply on the "Open Market" each April and throughout the summer. One word of caution- try to never burn a bridge because as big as this organization is, it is incredibly small too, and people talk. Moving up is more about who than what you know.
