A typical day at work consists of 2-4 classes (each class consisting of 20-24 students), followed by 3-5 recesses depending on the school your assigned to (each recess ranging from 3-9 classes with with 20-24 students each). If you don't have a classes before recess, then all your classes will be in the afternoon. You also have several after school responsibilities including sports leagues, leadership classes, and any additional task your school administration assigns you to. Management is supportive, but at the end of the day, it's up to the school administration to make a decision ...so, at the end of the day, you don't see much improvement . I think this is the hardest part of the job, not feeling in control of certain situations . The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing students' progress throughout the year! They are definitely the high light. If you can get past certain adults' attitudes (and sometimes backwards beliefs) you'll definitely enjoy it!
