Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – La Puente, CA – May 28, 2018
Good place to work if your trying to get a feel for working at a school with teachers you had when you attended. Not bad by any means other than the fact that i got paid every month and worked only about 18 hrs in the month so it wasn't great but its as close to being a teacher as you can get.
Immediate team is very collaborative and enjoyable to work with.

Contracted Mental HealthProvider (Former Employee) – various – June 2, 2017
RUSD has changed administration and consequently has become a difficult place to work. I worked under a contract so I did not have any benefits. I worked in all grades, With weak leadership in the district, it has trickled down to the schools. There is way too much emphasis on the money aspect at the detriment of the students.
People in the schools are generally great.
The district has poor leadership and are out of touch with the population.
A great place to work with dedicated employees who focus on student success

INTRUCTIONAL ASSISTANT/BILIGUAL (Former Employee) – Rowland Heights, CA – May 2, 2017
Assisted the teacher with the bilingual (Spanish) students in class. Helped with their reading and math. I worked with Kinder Gardeners, Third grade and Fifth grade students. The hardest part of the job was that it was only part-time.
Math Teacher (Former Employee) – Rowland Heights, CA – June 15, 2015
I was hired over a week after school starts (at no fault of my own. I applied, got interviewed and followed the hiring process perfectly), then transferred to another school within the first month, and was let go before first semester ends.
I help the kids with their studies. If they have any questions, they can ask me. I help the teacher make the classroom flow a bit better. I learned how to be a hard worker and be patient with students and people. My co-workers are very helpful and I learned how to work as a team. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the parents because they are frustrated with their kids but I tell them they are trying their best. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing results with the kids.
Career Vocational Assistant (Current Employee) – Rowland Heights, CA – July 16, 2014
My day is divided in three parts. Prepare students for work. Take to work. Return from work and write reviews and communicate with teacher about our day at work. I am still learning about student disabilities and what they are able to learn and not learn. The hardest part of my job is handling multiple levels of ability and learning to improvise at the very moment it is needed. The most enjoyable part of my job is the satisfaction I get when I see what I taught the student was worthwhile.
