Suggestions for improvement
- Reward employees for loyalty. There are almost no perks to working for this agency.
I like about the employer
I like that the job is highly rewarding; the level of impact a teacher can have on the lives of their students is immeasurable. Also, no two days are the same. The job is never boring and I have never had a sense of idleness.
I dislike about the employer
The NYC DOE does not value a work-life balance for teachers. We spend what sounds to be a mere seven hours in the school building daily, but this is entirely inaccurate. Hours are spent grading, lesson planning, meeting with students after school and documenting parent outreach. There is never a sense that the job is finished or complete. Every teacher spends countless hours of their own "free" time thinking about particular students, how to improve their instruction, specific lesson and classroom culture.
