Working with these students can get stressful at times but it is highly rewarding when you see that a student is improving.

I was a long-term sub instructional aid so I was able to stay at the same school for a while. You have the option to work in Manteca, Stockton, and Tracy. you get automated phone calls notifying you on positions that are available that day. I love all these kids and they will always hold a place in my heart. it can be stressful so you would have to have plenty of patience and love in your heart.

Its a good place to work, managing, phones, mail and directing, vendors, dealing with maintenance issues. Providing support to the Executive staff. The culture is diverse. The most enjoyable was the many people you had the opportunity to meet.

day starts with drive over many hours every day. after checking in with my supervisor then off to go to my Home Visits.

In this work place there is no room to grow for other culture , and grow is for certain culture not all. hart pert of job is no one is unbiased to talk to or confined it with. So far losing so many staffs because of this conditions
Technician (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – August 11, 2017
Position was quite demanding and there were other departments that had incredible amounts of down-time, while others were staying late and working over time in order to meet deadlines and complete tasks. Management was not very understanding of new employees needing time to learn and improve under such grueling deadlines.
LVN (Former Employee) – Redwood Special Ed Campus in Stockton, CA – March 31, 2013
A typical day at work was very busy. I learned quite a bit of time management. The supervising staff was very supportive. I really enjoyed the team work atmosphere and cohesiveness with fellow employees. The most difficult part of the job was occassionally dealing with terminal students and their parents. Very sad to see children nearing the end of their life. The best part of my job was working with children. It was very rewarding to feel like you really help or make a difference in someones day.
Intern/Teacher (Current Employee) – Stockton, CA – June 22, 2015
A typical day at work with the SJCOE was in the preschool and first grade classrooms where I had the opportunity to work with children diagnosed with ASD. My learning experiences were endless. I gained knowledge about how children were effected by ASD and how to overcome the obstacles that are accompanied with this disorder. I considered this position less as a job and more as a blessed vocation because the most enjoyable part of this experience is to observe the mental growth of child with disabilities influenced by me.

I work with students who are diagnosed with autism. A typical day at work consist of a structured schedule for the students. I work with an excellent team. We all trust each other and always support each other. Keeping up the students is the most challenging part of my day. They are so active and have so much energy. The most enjoyable part of my day is knowing that I am making a difference in my students lives.
