Suggestions for improvement

  • cut out unneeded programs and offer higher salaries

What I like about the company

the only real positive is that teachers get summers and holidays off. other then that we are over worked and under appreciated.

What I dislike about the company

teachers should earn a pay commensurate with the work that they do.

Suggestions for improvement

  • It would be good to have more programs to promote being environmentally friendly and do more in that arena.

What I like about the company

The central office administration visits the schools to see how teachers and students are doing and provide direction as well as feedback on how to present curriculum.

What I dislike about the company

It would be nice to have a bit more autonomy to choose how I teach the mandated standards.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would allow dress down days, leaving early or late as needed for family situations without having to take a full or half day off, maybe sick leave could be by the hour or half hour. Do not micromanage.

What I like about the company

I love working with the kids. My coworkers are fantastic. I have great health benefits.

What I dislike about the company

Poor work climate, not trusted or treated like an adult, not transparent. They want everyone to be like-minded and drink the kool-aid. Believing in your employees and focusing on the things that truly matter would go a long way. Creating positive professional development to help support rather than punish.

Suggestions for improvement

  • All Day Pre-Kindergarten, keeping centers/social skill development for Kindergarten, ALICE training for new staff, updating/ongoing ALICE training for existing staff, more Speech and Psyicologist staffing

What I like about the company

My administration has backed me up. I have seen them back up teachers with far more challenging students and put forth great effort to get children the assistance that they need, even when it is outside of our scope of abilities and resources. The county has not always agreed with my staff, but the administration is!

What I dislike about the company

We do need consistent consequences that "match the crime" and we need to find a way to hold the parents accountable for not following through with their child/neglecting.

Suggestions for improvement

  • the most important improvement is better pay.

What I like about the company

the best is that you get summers off. also, there is never school on weekend or holidays. this helps to provide some sort of work life balance.

What I dislike about the company

they assume you have no life and no family commitments. it is assumed that you can grade and do other tasks at home.
