"I've worked for The School City of East Chicago since 2004 and it has been fun. There's nothing like kids to brighten up your day.We've had our challenges, but what I've learned is it's important to keep a sense of humor through it all. I really appreciate all the adults who have assisted me. They're great!"

"The job itself is very fulfilling. Management leaves a lot to be desired. Middle management has less training than the technicians themselves, which leaves the technicians to rely on each other."
