The team I work with is fairly positive and helpful this year
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.
Communication in this area is provided clearly.
There are more females in our workplace than males.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Typically, there are many 'older employees' than younger ones.
Expectations are so high that teachers have very little 'life' time.
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.
