Suggestions for improvement

  • Improvement can be done in the area of bilingual education and hands on learning. Children in this age learn differently and need more visual learning but lack of funding makes it hard for teachers to accommodate.

What I like about the company

This district cares about its children. There is always programs to help all types of needs.

What I dislike about the company

Like all of Oklahoma, there is room for improvement in the area of compensation.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There should be a counselor and nurse in every building every day. I would make this happen.

What I like about the company

I love the students and people I work with. I love the schedule that I have as it allows me time with my own child/family on a more consistent and regular basis. I enjoy the flexibility that comes with my job and the company I work for.

What I dislike about the company

Education as a whole in Oklahoma is paid one of the least in the nation. I wish the state paid better. My sister would also benefit from stability in staff from the top to the bottom.
