Greet students and escort them to classroom. Complete attendance, and monitor meals. Review or Create lesson Plan, and instruct based on outlined plan. Assist in daily transitioning. Monitor students’ behavior, and ensure all students safety throughout the day. Escort students to designated dismissal area. I have truly enjoyed this position with this agency. They're very hands on, and so are available / accessible whenever needed. It's a fast pace environment, which can be challenging at first, but there is no lack of encouragement, to help keep you motivated, and inspired throughout the day.

I have been in the Metro Nashville Public School system through all of my years in school. Throughout my experience, I have had great teachers, learned from excellent curriculum, and as a whole have had a great time. There are a few things that I did dislike however. I did not like the MNPS dress code policy. For all my years in MNPS, we have always had to wear a collared shirt, and khaki pants. I feel that this suppresses students creativity and their ability to express themselves. I also disliked the food served at my schools throughout my experience. I feel that it was quite sub par compared to other schools menu options and quality.
The Davidson County School system has been under heavy review after not meeting state standards and came very close to a state takeover. Parents are leaving the school system and taking out loans for private schools in Davidson County and nearby Williamson County. However, some do not have this economic luxury and are left with a strained economic system. The systems vision statement is Metro Nashville Public Schools will be the fastest-improving urban school system in America, ensuring that every student becomes a life-long learner prepared for success in college, career and life. Lets hope this is the case.
