Rewarding work in education
Tutor Fellow (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 9, 2018
The main goal of SAGA Innovations is to provide assistance to freshmen and sophomores who are in jeopardy of failing their math class. It is very rewarding work, but there are some difficulties that come along with the demographics with which we work. There were also a lot of discrepancies with information we were told before the job started, and how things actually worked once we were at our sites. There is also a lot of unknowns even once the job begins, which can be stressful for some people. I have learned a lot about myself, my capabilities, and my shortcomings, as well as how to handle other people. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing my kids get excited about learning something new, or being trusted with sensitive information because they know how much I care about them.
