Education equates the evolution of one’s mind
Chief Secretary to the Principal (Current Employee) – Paterson, NJ – August 21, 2017
Working at Paterson Public Schools is very fulfilling. Every day brings new challenges and experiences. There is nothing greater than empowering the life of a child. Watching children grow and evolve into young men and woman who are equipped to face life's challenges and become product community servants. I learned that learning is the key that unlocks the doors to one’s potential and confidence to become great.
At times the work environment can be very challenging with all that is happening in education as it pertains to teaching. New methods and ideals brought in don’t always fit into the mold of today's generation.
The hardest part of the job I find is keeping up positive building moral. There are always so many changes in education that the staff becomes overwhelmed. So much so that often times the staff take additional work home both physically and emotionally.
The most enjoyable part of working in a district... is being a part of student growth; having the ability to change a life and a family is so rewarding. Assisting both students and families with whatever is needed within my capacity to do so brings joy to my heart. I count it a great honor to be a part of the whole. Serving my community...bringing hope to individuals who face a multitude of challenges one student, one household, one community at a time.
