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

  • The facility is not located in the safest part of town. It would be nicer if our office was located in a more up to date remote part of town.

What I like about the company

The work environment is nice to be associated with. The employees are friendly. And the benefits are worth it.

What I dislike about the company

No disapproval of any sorts. The only concern would be to have more vending machines.

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.

  • The parish needs to stop changing school curriculums every year. It doesn’t help the kids.

What I like about the company

I like my coworkers/teammate teachers.

What I dislike about the company

The administration and parish leaders are concerned with keeping their jobs more than what kids really need. Nepotism is prevalent throughout the parish.

  • 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.

  • School board should consult teachers more in the decision making of the school year.

What I like about the company

My Administration is very professional, organized and have strong moral values. They are very supportive of their teachers, and have open door policies with parents. Our school motto is ''we are a neighborhood school with heart,'' and it is true. They make all faculty and employees feel like family.

What I dislike about the company

Some of the school board's decisions make little sense to teachers. Example: Free flu shots were offered to all teachers and staff in the district but they were offered at the school board office from 9am to 1pm on a school day. Also, the school board runs a teacher resource center that is a great asset to teachers but it's hours of operation is not convenient for teachers. It is open during the school day when teachers are busy teaching and closes an hour and a half after the end of the school day. It is also closed during school breaks when teachers are available and desire to visit.
