Company Culture

The team I work with is fairly positive and helpful this year

Teamwork

Employees are highly encouraged to work as teams

Freedom to work independently

Employees are now given 'scripts' to follow in both Math and ELA which leaves little freedom for the teachers.

Internal Communication

Communication in this area is provided clearly.

Gender Equality

There are more females in our workplace than males.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Typically, there are many 'older employees' than younger ones.

Work-Life Balance

Expectations are so high that teachers have very little 'life' time.

Challenging Work

We have new curricula in both ELA and Math this year which makes it very challenging.

Inclusive / Diverse

This varies based upon school.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I feel a little less pressure to perform SO high would be better. I understand the need for high expectations but the stress level placed and almost 'guilt' placed upon the faculty and staff is unnecessary.

What I like about the company

I have worked for several great principals. My current principal is probably my best so far. He is extremely understanding and supportive. He offers every possible amount of support to his faculty and staff that he can. He stands by and supports his employees in good times and in bad. Faculty is encouraged to work as a team, to help and support each other. Students are to be lifted up and not to be beat down verbally, or in any other manner. The same go3s for faculty and staff, we are encouraged to lifted up in prayer daily, as well as in any other manner possibly. We are all truly encouraged to be there for each other.

What I dislike about the company

There is a lot of extra work placed upon teachers, all faculty and staff. The expectations are extremely hugh and in order to meet those expectations, a lot of extra 'off duty' time is required to get it done. I arrive at work approximately an hour and a half early every day. And use about 2 hours each evening and 10 hours or more on the weekends devoted to 'school work.' I frequently feel the pressure to do more.

Suggestions for improvement

  • A basic understanding of day to day running of the company would be beneficial. If administrators were required to step back into the trenches, so to speak, and recall what it is like to perform day to day duties. Admin and central office figures need to be required to work in the classroom every few years. Also, teachers should not be expected to be held 100% accountable for everything that goes on in each student's education...parents and students need to be held accountable too. Boost school climate and culture by uplifting teachers and bynot blaming them for every thing that happens. Hold parents and students accountable. Finally, reinstate recess, at least at the Elementary level. Teachers as well as students need that break time.

What I like about the company

Coworkers tend to be supportive of one another.

What I dislike about the company

The company infrastructure has maintained the same for over 20 years. While more pressure and stress has been placed on the outward branches, the administration, and those "higher up," seem to have less to worry about.

  • Same as I stated before, treatment of staff and management skills and style.

What I like about the company

The pay is great, but nothing else is good. The benefits are ok if you make it that far.

What I dislike about the company

The treatment of staff and employees. The terrible mistake management and stress it creates as well as the hostile work environment created by management with a cut throat or against one another type of style.
