I enjoyed each and every session I was doing with people even though sometimes people would take me for granted.Honestly though those people made me stronger I wish I could go back to my old job actually it was not a job exactly we were the Women of Work talking things about girls and to handle our problems.

My workload is always planned and reviewed before I start any lesson.I have learned never to see any challange as a stumble block but any oppitunity to learn.As far as management goes every person tried their udmost best to meet company requirements.The challenging part of my job was concerns were raised but never met.What made my job enjoyable was knowing you can make a difference in a young childs life who is being educated on things that impact their lives long term.
Pros
meeting new people everyday you can impact positively.
Cons
No sucsession plan long term
