Teacher Assistant in Centerville:
"Stay Far Away."
Pros: The parents and the kids were the only reason I did not want to leave.
Cons: Illegally cheat you out of OT, not offered any benefits, my schedule was not consistent, my placement in the rooms was all over the place, if you have to go to the bathroom forget about trying to get ahold of the front office to let you go. The directors have the WORST attitudes. You never leave when you are scheduled to. Backstabbing teachers that are encouraged by the owner and directors. Expected to do way more than your job description and not compensated appropriately. Need supplies for projects or for the classroom? Expect to buy them out of pocket and good luck trying to get reimbursed. Always out of ratio.
