Teamwork

Yes our school family is like that. But we don't feel that way about the Superintendent or administration.

Freedom to work independently

You are always being watched by someone, not always a great feeling. Especially when you are doing the best you can in the environment we work.

Internal Communication

Our school family communicates very well, "BUT" all administrators and the Superintendent not so much..

Gender Equality

Yes absolutely.

Career Development

Yes

Overall compensation for your work

Suggestions for improvement

  • I don't really have a comment on that. I believe I said it all in my last two comments.

What I like about the company

I love working with the teacher and staff I work with. However "some" children today are very out of control, they have very little discipline at home and it carries over to school. It's very heartbreaking to have to deal with children that don't care, can speak to you anyway they want, hit and spit. Children get away with to much these days.

What I dislike about the company

No discipline/consequences for children

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay raises for teachers and assistants that work with difficult children no one else wants to work with.

What I like about the company

After 8 years you’re eligible for a pension. But it won’t be much if you’renot a certified teacher. If you are a certified teacher plan on not having a very healthy lifestyle or being able to send quality time with family. Don’t think for 1 second HCPS pays their employees well. HCPS does not spend money wisely and uses monies that should have used for promised raises unscrupulously on other things.

What I dislike about the company

How they have bullied teachers that have worked their 20+ years to change schools or retire.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Vote out all school board members and start from scratch. Have all teachers be on the board. Stop the current evaluation tool and go back to the old one that was much more cut and dry rather than this subjective garbage that was passed off as more objective! Put the teachers first. The kids will automatically come first because the teachers will know they are safer and will maintain focus on the kids!

What I like about the company

The best part of my job is working with kids and seeing them learn. To speak an interest in something they have been struggling with or now "get" is the greatest joy! It makes me feel like I can actually do this!

What I dislike about the company

The school board pits teachers against each other as well as administration often times. They don't how the contract. This past year teachers who were supposed to get their raise, didn't. Harsh working environments, no AC or a broken one. Kids that run things because there is no real consequences for their actions, just a slap on the wrist.
