community focused and rewarding position with a lot of fun activities
Assistant (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – September 30, 2015
This was an amazing job. I got to work with my brother, help out kids with special needs, play games, and help teach in the classroom.
A typical day at work consisted of joining a group's schedule and helping supervise in P.E., math, english, bible study, media, and art. Another duty I had was to clean and organize the huge and very stuffed storage room, fetch supplies, clean and organize the classrooms after the day was over, and help teachers set up.
The hardest part of the job was learning how to work affectively and efficiently with kids with special needs. I have a couple of cousins with special needs, so I had an idea of what to expect but it was still very overwhelming at first. They got upset very easily, had trouble focusing, and were challenging to teach. However, the best part of the job was also the hardest. These kids were the happiest, most enthusiastic people I have ever spent time around. I left every day a little sad, but feeling joyful and excited for the next day. I definitely learned a lot about taking care of others and tutoring, as well as learning how to communicate with people who had combination barriers.
