A Day In The Life

Assistant At An Elementary School Library Job Title: Library Resource Assistant Type of Company: School library. Education: attended, Southern Illinois University (Carbondale, IL) Previous Experience: None. Job Tasks: I check out books. I shelve books. I deal with students. I coordinate reading programs. I coordinate lessons with teachers. I prepare spreadsheets. I collect money. I make deposits. I read books. I do inventory. I communicate with parents regarding overdue books. I set up overdue notices. I order supplies. I help out in a yearbook class. I set up and keep a schedule and communicate with pertinent persons on the meeting list. I obtain books from the public library and track when they are due so that we can return them on time. I assist students on the computers. I update computers with current software. I educate teachers on a birthday book club to obtain additional books for the library that are not funded by the district. I print labels. I repair and mend books. I weed out old books to obtain new books. I clean up when all the students leave. Best and Worst Parts of the Job: The best part of the job is the hours and the fact that I can take my kids with me to school and leave when the school day is over. I know all of the teachers and can communicate with them about my children. I know what is going on in the school at all times. I know all of the students and my kids' friends. The worst part of the job is all of the germs that I come in contact with. Job Tips: I would do everything you can to get this job because you are there with your kids. This also gets your foot in the door for any jobs with the district that are only open to current employees. This is a very rewarding job because of seeing how happy you can make the kids. You can truly change a child's life just by talking to them. Another good thing about this job is that you can work with so many people. Additional Thoughts: I would not say that this is a career. It is a stepping stone.
