Fun and Laid Back Job Atmosphere
Teacher/Caregiver (Current Employee) – Clinton, IA – March 31, 2019
As someone who really enjoys working with children, The YWCA was definitely a fit for me. You get to work with many different kids with many different personalities and it was fun getting to know all of them.
A typical day at work includes just talking and playing with the kids, getting them their meals, and putting the kids who stay past 8pm to bed. It's a fairly laid back job and a job that you can have fun at. The kids can be super fun and you can do fun things with them! It also helps that there isn't one person at The YWCA that I didn't like.
I will say that the hardest part of the job is dealing with temperamental kids or kids who don't listen. It takes a lot of patience and understanding to calm a child down, and it takes a lot of assertiveness and sense of authority to get children to follow the rules. These are skills that come with time and practice. The best part of the job was spending time with the children. You really learn to care about all of them and sometimes seeing the kids can brighten your day.
