Stimulating and challenging detail oriented work
My typical day included any and sometimes all of the following: checking electronic correspondence, following up on all requests for placement and/or other information, preparing reports as needed, logging data on a consistent basis in electronic files, communicating with partner schools for placement of students needing field experience and student teaching placements, preparing documents for placements, creating electronic files for resumes and placement documents, preparing spreadsheets for tracking purposes and any other tasks typical to the office experience--copying, filing, sending faxes, etc.
I have learned a great deal about what excellent leadership is from some of my colleagues and what it is not from others. Listening to understand has become a very important part of my experience. The work I most enjoyed was all that I have listed above. I loved my job!
