Child and Parent Focused with a common goal towards education
Program Specialist (Former Employee) – Renton, Wa – June 29, 2015
A typical day at work would include typical office management duties including but not limited to: answering phones, assisting parents in inquires, filing, assisting Program Director in daily tasks, etc. I had an incredible amount of responsibility in regards to helping run the school. There were only two office staff members including myself. Making sure the school was running smoothly and functioning on an even level was the daily goal. Not one day was the same as the next. I learned that patience is a true given gift and respect goes a long way. You learn a lot about humanity when it comes to dealing with personal lives especially with children. My management was incredible. Very personal, direct, compassionate and involved. Same goes to my co-workers. They as teachers had a common goal and with the unique nature of our type of school, it was easy to get along well with everyone. The hardest part of the job was having to coordinate with the neighboring school. We were placed with a school complete opposite of what our school was about and it was challenging at times. However, the most enjoyable part of the job was working with the parents and children. Being able to work with them on a daily basis knowing that you are affecting their lives in a positive manner made the day well worth it.
