Suggestions for improvement

  • I explained the improvements in my previous response.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed working with the staff at my location. The upper management changed often but they were open to our thoughts and ideas.

What I dislike about the company

I didn't like how employees could not use their sick time for weather related days off. Would be nice if it could fall under a different category to be used exclusively for weather related cancellations.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More teachers, money. More opportunities to take special need students on field trips. Having a covered walkway to unload EC buses with wheelchairs would be great.

What I like about the company

There to help with anything to better your daily job functions. Every day is a new learning day. The Ec Department is tough but as a team all works out.

If your not a team player this job,is not for you.

What I dislike about the company

There is none at this time. Every thing is great. Working environment could not be better. Staff is always willing to help were ever needed. May donate ha bcc e of there lunch time to assist others.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More time for planning. Spread teachers assistants out equally among grade levels.

What I like about the company

The children I work with are incredible. They are truly the only reason I stay in education.

What I dislike about the company

Special education teachers do not get paid enough, nor do they make more money than regular education teachers. The county doesn’t have a cross cat class which means kids with an IQ 66+ will be in the regular classroom doing every child a disservice. Special education has also lost funding and no longer gets money from the county for their classrooms so they have to use their own money to get materials for the classroom.
