Everything. Daily there would be a rescue, at least once or twice a month 911 was called. The supervisors were never on the same page about anything and would yell at me for doing exactly what they told me to do. Being yelled at by patrons was a daily occurrence and I was told (and I quote) to "suck it up and deal with it" when being threatened by patrons.

It can be mentally exhausting. Working with sometimes larger groups of children ranging in ages from kindergarten to fifth grade. Lots of different skill level and diversity can be challenging.
