To work for bad people is absolutely sole destroying. The construction section is run by bad people in Wellington. They play political games and have no ethics.

I love teaching students in school but I am bored when it comes to heaps and heaps of paper work. I have an interest in driving and would like to pursue it as a career.

It was a frontline demanding job, I have learnt to be patient with the service I provide. The staff and management were good. The workplace was very large and was a mixture of staff working for Special needs education and Ministry of Education staff.

It was a very pressurizing job at the frontline but I really enjoyed meeting new people and helping them.
Pros
Learnt a lot about the education system
Cons
Very pressurizing

Awesome fun place to work and gain experience in. Only a casual job so it is a good job to have whilst studying or working at another job. Working with young children from the age of 5 can be very uplifting and rewarding if you have a passion for teaching young kids and helping with their learning abilities.
Pros
Helping children learn
Cons
Not enough hours to earn a sustainable living.

I have to follow students when they are using the computer lab. In this job i learn many things about new technologies. It is very nice to work at school, with a good management. Sometime we do have problems with the students. But we tackle the matter with delicacy. The job is not hard, but during exams period we must be updated. It is fun to work in school because I have a lot of free time.
Pros
Many Holydays
Cons
Have to work on Saturdays

I have group class's and individual class's some students are there for fun and some for grading and help in jazz band or orchestra. I learn a lot from my students, they teach me how to be better by teaching me different ways of teaching so I can help them understand. The work place is great and so is management.
I love what I do and to teach what I enjoy doing there is nothing

better then that.

Pros
Seeing education from a whole other level
Cons
The loss of great staff due to contracting and lack of money to continue to pay to keep good, hardworking and dedicated staff on
