Really, I'm convinced it does.
When I tell people about my job, and the different things I've done and grades I've subbed in and the responsibilities I've had, they usually respond with,
"That's good experience to have under you belt."
And I've grown a lot as a person and an educator since taking this job as a teacher's aide, and the experiences have been exceptional. I've just been storing them on paper and in my memory, not under my belt.
