Nottoway County Public Schools has trusted Allied Instructional Services to provide quality services for the past three years to our students with disabilities. We appreciate their team approach and the fact that their staff has a real understanding of the special education needs of our schools. AIS always responds quickly to our requests and is available to address any issues that arise. It is wonderful to have a one stop provider that can meet the many special services that our students require.
While working through AIS I have experienced a lot of professional growth from serving a diverse population of students in a variety of educational settings.
Working for AIS gives me an opportunity to continue doing a job that I love. I can set my own schedule and determine the amount of time I want to work. As a retired teacher, this flexibility is extremely important to me.
AIS is not just another contracting company. It is run by professionals who have experience in the field. The connections and resources they provide are invaluable!
I love being a subcontractor with Allied Instructional Services because I always feel like I'm being supported in my professional and educational growth. Being a part of the team and having constant reassurance that we're all an important member of a great family of advocates for our students, makes this this best job ever!
I applied to work at AIS because I had met Karen Vay a few months before I graduated college at a conference and she talked to me about the company. Her kindness stuck with me and I decided to apply. Flash forward to my third year working for them and I am still amazed with the effort they put into making sure I have a caseload that works for me, the flexibility I have with my schedule, as well as the support I have with whatever I may need.
I have really enjoyed working as an Allied contractor. The administrative staff have really supported me as a new Orientation and Mobility Specialist. That said, I also have also enjoyed a high degree of autonomy as an independent contractor. As a former middle school SPED teacher, I wanted to continue working with students with special needs. With Allied, I am able to do that in a be-my-own-boss scenario.
With AIS I know that I'm part of a wonderful team of teachers who genuinely care and want to make a difference in a child's life. Sometimes being a vision itinerant feels like being Gilligan stranded alone on that deserted island. Thankfully, being on the island with AIS means you have the Professor there to make a radio out of coconuts.
I have been contracting my D/HH service for AIS for 3 years now. They are a very professional and great Company to work with. I always have their support.
I love working for AIS. This is my second year and so far, I have been happier and felt more appreciated than the fifteen previous years that I have worked in the public schools. AIS is great at balancing the freedom of itinerant teaching with the support of contracting with an agency invested in learning and outreach.
Being connected with AIS has helped me navigate my transition from working in a private practice to the public school system. AIS has supported me by helping me apply my experience and skills as an SLP while also providing me with the new knowledge needed to thrive in the school environment. I feel very appreciated and valued as a professional!
