Suggestions for improvement

  • I think more positive, meaningful feedback is needed. Teachers need to know when they are doing thing correctly for validation.

What I like about the company

My coworkers have been the best experience. We laugh to keep from crying most days. We motivate each other and share advice and activities. Overall, they are a great support system.

What I dislike about the company

The pay is too low for the required work. I supervise 140 students, and their demands increase as each year passes. The pay needs to increase along with those demands.
