Suggestions for improvement

  • I would definitely improve the ways that administrators, at various levels in the district, are evaluated and given feedback.

What I like about the company

I love getting to work with students. I have also experienced a lot of meaningful support from people in my school district as I've started on my teaching journey.

What I dislike about the company

I do not approve of the ways that they shuffle principals around to new schools every 3-7 years. This makes it so that principals are not able to truly invest in the school they work in and means a lot of changes every few years for teachers and students.

  • Update the buildings to accommodate air conditioning

What I like about the company

I work for a very large public school district and I am proud to be their employee

What I dislike about the company

A lot of our buildings are old and it takes a lot of money to update them, ie: air conditioning.
It's very hot sometimes and almost unbearable to work.
