Worked with dedicated coworkers, Learned about the challenges military personnel face.
In-Home Parent Educator (Former Employee) – Coronado, CA – September 6, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting and working with military families, in order to increase their understanding of child development and age appropriate expectations of children.
One of the most difficult aspects of the job was the travel required, in order to meet individual families in their own home environments. The time spent traveling from home to home limited the amount of time to complete mandatory paperwork and documentation of visits.
A typical day at work included preparing lesson plans for visits with individual families, based on the needs of the family and ages of their children. The documentation and entry of reports and statistical data required a great deal of time on a daily basis.
I feel I learned a great deal about the military and the challenges faced by those serving and their families, especially when children are involved. While my gratitude to those individuals knows few, if any limits, I am also aware of the challenges it places on every member of a family, regardless of age.
While employed as a contractor, I found it somewhat difficult reporting to not only civilian program management but also to military personnel and their requirements.
