This fall I started my 10th school year working at an elementary school. I started on the playground. I've worked in the kitchen. I think my favorite job was working as a kindergarten teacher's aide for three years. It was the BEST job ever.
After working in the middle school (6th - 8th grade) for three years; I'm back in the elementary. I'm working in the office as the attendance clerk. This is the second best job I've had working at the school. I get to do my work without someone looking over my shoulder and micromanaging.
In the past, I worked with a moody, jealous, biter woman. The woman I work with now is for the most part easy going and helpful. It's a much better working environment.
Although I technically work two title positions; I am now working full time hours (7hrs).
I am SO grateful for my job. I love it!
I work with great people. I have a great boss. I'm able to do the kind of work I love. (office/paper pusher)
Most importantly, I hope I'm able to make a positive, happy memory for the 500 little people that walk those halls each and every day.
