I split my time between working in the classroom and the office. In the classroom, I assist the lead teacher and I took on a project of lesson planning for a whole unit which lasted 4 weeks and completing the classroom environment plan. In the office, I help with filing and completed a project on billing and discounts for clients. I also helped the director with the interviewing process in hiring new candidates and I even got to conduct phone interviews by myself.


Conducting phone interviews and assisting in in-person interviews.

What advice would you give?

Get out of your comfort zone, because you will learn a lot more when you do.
