Company Culture

I work with good people

Internal Communication

Frequent communication

Challenging Work

I have very challenging behaviors in my classroom

Suggestions for improvement

  • For example, when a survey is sent out,respect what we respond with, not come up with an option we couldn't vote on. Paid maternity leave should be a priority.

What I like about the company

The students are always the best part of the work. Seeing them learn and be excited is very rewarding.

What I dislike about the company

Let teachers have more say and treat us as professionals

What I like about the company

Chesterfield County offers good health benefits and professional development.

What I dislike about the company

Current central office administration is mandating central office staff visits to all schools on a regular basis. This will be an improvement and offer those personnel a real opportunity to see what is going on in the schools.

  • See my answer to the previous question. Also, teachers should be asked about decisions related to them, such as new school buildings, student assessments, etc.

What I like about the company

I have been with the company for 17 years

What I dislike about the company

More support and attention is given to schools in affluent neighborhoods, while Title 1 schools are left to struggle without support. There are not equitable teacher to student ratios across the division.
