Suggestions for improvement

  • With more funding we could clean up our schools, get news books, and provide a better educational environment for our students.

What I like about the company

Teaching is a rewarding career, but it’s a lot of hard work. CPS pays very well, and I feel I am Supported by peers.

What I dislike about the company

As far as upper level executive positions, women do not hold enough of those positions. Teaching is dominated by women, and yet there aren’t a lot at the executive level. The same can be said for minority teachers.

Suggestions for improvement

  • More pay for more responsibility. More pay for more hours worked. Management needs to have a much more accurate understanding of blow long it takes teachers to complete certain tasks.

What I like about the company

In work with amazing people. When I ask for hhelp, I usually receive it in some form. My hard work is consistently recognized. There is opportunity for growth through professional development. There image so many opportunities to experience through leadership of different committees. There is a culture of respect for diversity.

What I dislike about the company

People get paid the same No matter how many hours they put into their work. Some people have to pick up the slack of others. Also, the employees ar e given so much work to do and so much is expected of them, that there is no way to truly finish your work. Everyone is always a little behind in their work.
