    Great Experience with some special students

    TEACHERS ASSISTANT (Former Employee)
    Maryland Heights, MO

    ProsI really loved working with the students with special needs, watching them succeed in their life goals was amazing experience.

    ConsThere was a lack of communications between staff and Human Resource Office. Also I notice a lack of respect towards Teacher Assistant position in general plus low wages.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove communications, respect all Special School District staff including Teacher Assistants and consider a salary for staff. Fast food workers often earn more than than Teacher Assistants.
