Suggestions for improvement

  • I feel that perks on site would improve moral and would have teachers in a good mood.

What I like about the company

OCPS is a good company. Working for the school system lets me have summers off, 2 weeks in December, a week in November and a week in March for vacation time.

What I dislike about the company

The amount of pressure teachers have on them, the fact that teachers have to work after hours so often and the amount of independence that is given, which is not much. Teachers are not allowed to be as creative as they would like and are given scripts to teach.

Support from management

Ann Hembrook was a horrible, unsupportive principal. Under her management there were two teachers who left mid school year because of how badly she treated them. She allowed a student to threaten the life of a teacher and did nothing. She harassed a teacher just back from maternity leave for her deliberate practice before she even had the opportunity to learn her students names.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Find a principal who knows how to support her teachers so they can work in a safe and enjoyable environment, also so the kids can learn in an effective way. Wasting time nitpicking teachers about things that are completely irrelevant to the students and take time from their learning.

What I like about the company

The healthcare benefits and PTO. The teachers I worked with were wonderful, but the administration is a mess. They have their priorities so out of line it's completely inappropriate. The students get the short end of the stick because of this sad mess.

What I dislike about the company

Administration.
