Some co-workers are helpful and positive.

What I dislike about the company

I feel there need to be more concrete systems in place for issues. I feel the culture of the school needs to change.

The coworkers are awesome because we are all in the same boat together trying to make a difference for the children.

What I dislike about the company

Administration doesn’t understand what is going on in the classroom and so does the state. They give us a test and they do not recommend a curriculum to help for the test.
