Suggestions for improvement

  • More support staff, higher pay, more positive incentives. Strong leaders that are there to help

What I like about the company

I have worked with some great teachers. I have had some great years in my district. I have grown as a teacher because of some older role models and mentors.

What I dislike about the company

There is less help as far as support staff as well as kids are more challenging. Our pay is really low for the job we do.
