Suggestions for improvement

  • More transparency with spending, more technology in our classrooms, and admin needs to be more strict with student behavior. We need to be backed up.

What I like about the company

I work with some amazing people, for starters. Second, I make a difference in the lives of kids. Though it’s hard sometimes, it’s ultimately worth it.

What I dislike about the company

We desperately need more funds for supplies like pencils and expo markers. Also, SO MUCH is spent on professional development when all we want is to work in our classrooms.
