Suggestions for improvement

  • If at all possible, public education should be left alone and allowed to find a focus without all of the additional initiatives and politics.

What I like about the company

As an educator, you may never know what impact you have on your students, but seeing a child come to an understanding, a lightbulb experience, is life changing, both for me and for the student.

What I dislike about the company

Public education is asked to do way too much with too few resources. Lots of people without any direct connection to the classroom are quick to set expectations.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Clearer about evaluation/rubric upon hiring, opportunities to increase in salary, more support for staff.

What I like about the company

Great training and professional development, amazing coworkers.

What I dislike about the company

Huge expectations for teachers in terms of hours worked and time given outside of working hours, lack of transparency about growth/evaluations, teachers are treated as disposable.
