Suggestions for improvement

  • Working in a 99% female populated environment, I sometimes feel we let our emotions get in the way of calmer & more respectful communication. I think that communication and respect for each others' views and opinions could be improved.

What I like about the company

I have a great team at my building & I value all of them. We work together as a family & they are supportive of each other. We work problems out when they are presented. When my son's father died a few years ago, I would not have made it through emotionally without them. We sometimes have disagreements at my building, but I feel we can always communicate and solve them. I feel supported with my team.

What I dislike about the company

I would always like better compensation for the job I do, but this is more of a state support issue than a site or district issue. I have a huge caseload of students that is extremely above the state recommended ratio of students to counselor ratio. That makes my job very tough sometimes, but I'm glad I'm able to work with my students.
