Teacher Assistant in Miami:
"I am a teacher assistant at a day care that gets paid $8.05."
Pros: Mt job is fascinaring when it comes to teaching the kids their abc's how to count and how to observe what surrounds them. This is an important stage in their lives, and I love being part of it. I love seeing them get enthusiastic about the activities, singing to songs. I enjoy lunch time because I see how each and one of them begin to share their food. My job can cause headaches at times when they dont listen, when they disrespect one another and when they disrespect me, but patience is a virtue and day by day I help them better themselves.
Cons: I dislike how unappreciative my coworkers are and how the management ignores our efforts. I dislike how little we are being paid for a job that takes so much energy from us, for a job thats so important in our community. I help these kids be better day by day, I prepare for the future, and I dont get any recognition for it. Its also upsetting how much work I do, I do the teacher's work, because the teacher is doing the manager's work. Everyone is getting payed minumun wage, when its not suppose to be like that.
