    I have been working at THINK Together part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the kids are wonderful and you walk away feeling like you've made a difference in their lives. Sometimes the only place they can be kids is after school and Think provides that for them. The staff at my site are also great and very accepting of questions.

    Cons

    Where do I start? The lack of organization makes it so that Program Leaders are just thrust into the classroom without guidance or support. I did not properly know how to manage my classroom and things got out of hand fast. Also because Think dissuades leaders from properly punishing chlidren (ie. sending them to the office, making them sit out of physical activity, etc.) the kids take advantage of this and get out of hand. What's the use of having "academic enrichment" when they've already been sitting in the classroom for seven hours?? Let them run around, draw, talk to their friends and just be kids. This could be a great opportunity for kids if only implemented correctly.

    My SC was nice but very aloof and unhelpful in some circumstances. I felt that having over 20 kids in the classroom (state limit is 20:1 ratio, how are they getting away with this?) was too overwhelming at times and that I needed less kids so that they could enjoy themselves. Really? 24 kids in a class? Come one, you can do better Think.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for incoming PL's to shadow and observe a classroom BEFORE they get their own. All that training in the beginning amounted to nothing because it's the practice that counts, NOT the fluffy stuff at training. You are not paid enough as PL's to handle this, please consider paying more or allowing more hours.
