Pros

Experience with helping kids succeed in the classroom is very rewarding Helpful Site Coordinators--Some have a vast amount of knowledge about managing a classroom and creating lesson plans Program Leaders at my former site worked together to make the day's activities run smoother Can get some great ideas about managing a classroom from training sessions Great prep for those going into teaching profession

Cons

Only get a day or two of shadowing before getting assigned a class to sub for Only 5-7 minutes prep time for day's lessons Change program operations rules constantly without input from Site Coordinators. Can get sent home early if the site does not have an average of 20 students per class Pay low for amount of responsibility. Very high turnover

Advice to Management

Before you make any changes in the program rules, get input from the Site Coordinators first.

    Pros

    -Definitely working with the kids, if you like kids and have a genuine ability to want to help them -Hands on experience of having your own class

    Cons

    -The amount of work to do in 3 hours, yes THREE hours! -NO RAISES! We should NOT be getting paid the same amount as a new hire after working there for more than 2 years, get real! -Don't expect to getting any awards for being in the front line and working your butt off -Lack of respect from QAC's, they just think business, not what's best for the kids -Kids are not having fun when we're turning an after school program into a MILITARY base, let them be kids, we know how to get them in line and get their attention already -Program is turning into a school rather than a fun program, might as well start giving the kids homework -Take home work when you're "off the clock" -Don't expect to leave during your scheduled time, unless visitors are there because its "illegal". -Your 15 minute "prep time" is used catching up or fixing things from days before, get used to it - VEEERRRYYYYY high expectations! We're not miracle works, don't expect us to be perfect when we have assessments, those just pressure us even more to be so militant -No benefits, no bonuses, sorry

    Advice to Management

    Your "ideas" of helping students and bettering them are great, but we don't have time for that. Give us more hours, higher pay, and then your mission might be possible. Some of your workers are also getting a power high and not respecting us the way we should be. Get off your cloud. Us program leaders are the ones executing this program, NOT the QAC, NOT the SC'S, NOT anyone! If we're doing a great job, let us know. We need praises and raises. We have families that we need to take care of too, remember that.

    Pros

    Great Job if you want to become a teacher. Real hands on. Rewarding teaching kids.not a laid back job. Around 25 kids you get to manage on your own.

    Cons

    They sometimes don't practice what they preach. They say to do one thing but contradicts another. Hiring from within is horrible. They promise you and tell you it's easy but it's not. You have a set schedule time which is most of afternoons so if have classes at there times forget it. They don't care if you've been there for 1 year or 10. They do start u off with 11 dollars but dont expect to get raises. Plus the cut hours like crazy. Started of doing around 20-23 hours a week. They cut down so much they made sure you could not go over 18.75 a week...
