There is a large pay discrepancy in my current job. Those that are new hires are positive, those that have been around a while are not.
Support from management
Depends on the supervisor
Freedom to work independently
Even though we have work days with no students, we still have to report. People are sent from the board of education to check the school parking lots to make sure staff are there.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I've seen teachers who want to change schools but due to their age they are not hired elsewhere.
Overall compensation for your work
Not compared to new teachers. There is a huge pay inequity
Office / Work Environment
Temperatures at controlled by central office, not in each school.
There are high demands of teachers and they are expected to give up time after hours for their students.
I used to be. They don't value teachers who have put in years for them.
I have tenure.
There are a lot more demands of teachers now than when I started almost 15 years ago.
Suggestions for improvement
- Restructure pay to be fair (since the county council approved the money) Principal evaluations
What I like about the company
I earned tenure. I have very good benefits.I have the option to receive my pay over 26 pays (summer reserve).Summers offSet scheduleMake a difference in kids lives
What I dislike about the company
Pay inequity amongst teachers Frequent professional developments (basically insinuating teachers are incapable)
