The School District of Palm Beach County (SDPBC), Florida experience report

  • 17.Nov 2018
  • Employee

Teaching is hard work, but of all the counties in Florida, I would recommend Palm Beach over all the others.

4.11

Suggestions for improvement

  • The district could be more passionate about helping students with special needs, and less focused on test scores. The constant worry, and having to teach towards tests, creates a very heavy work place energy during that time of the year.

What I like about the company

Working in Palm Beach County has given me the opportunity to work with a diverse group of children and teachers, from various countries and heritages. I have been exposed to so many different cultures, socioeconomic statuses, and lifestyles, that I feel it helps me be a better teacher.

What I dislike about the company

More money needs to be put into Exceptional Student Education. Teachers also need to be paid a living wage for Palm Beach County.
