School Counselor (Former Employee) – Melbourne, FL – December 22, 2016
Good people for the most part. They work hard to keep things afloat with minimal operational budget. People of county do not support taxes so the schools are underfunded. Poor pay and facility maintenance resulting in poorly maintained buildings. Air is turned off over Summer and leaks are not fixed creating mold problems. A/c poorly maintained is not dealt with until it breaks. A/ c filters not changed creating respiratory issues for staff.
Hard working smart people
No budget for salaries or building maintenance health care costs
I work with the Head Start Program and is proud to be a part of helping the less fortunate in our community.
Instructional Assistant (Current Employee) – Brevard County, FL – January 2, 2017
The Head Start Program is federally funded and it is very helpful for the underprivileged younger population in my community. The teachers and assistants have coaches that provide training on effective classroom management and various strategies for an effective program.
Teacher, Middle School Mathematics (Current Employee) – Titusville, FL – October 30, 2016
* probably the most difficult thing that I've ever tried to do * I really enjoyed the collegiality of the staff at the school that I worked at * working with young people is mostly interesting but it can be really draining, and it can be especially difficult being new at teaching with limited support and guidance available
Was a great place to work until the management change 3 years ago. Many of the seasoned workforce have left the District. My work day started at 6:00am, daily I would check fuel levels in all 9 delivery sites. Check stock levels and prepare reorders to quote. Process PO's for requisitioned parts. Process repair orders for the surveillance and communication systems on the buses.

a typical day consisted of interaction with parents and school based professionals. Great vibe and coworkers. Hard to satisfy all request of parents at the same time so efficiency was a plus! Enjoyed being in a workplace where my son attended school and where I got along with everyone.
Instructional Assistant (Current Employee) – Palm Bay, FL – May 12, 2016
I have been working at the Brevard Schools for the past four school years. I have had a positive experience and there has been great support in many areas. I have learned how to be a part of a team by collaborating and maintaining a positive and excellent school culture. The most challenging part of the job is to be able to meet the overall developmental needs of individual students. The most enjoyable part of the job is the team players and support from members.

I am always learning something new from staff or coworkers and from the kids too. .The most enjoyable part of my job is talking to the kids and, making their day as interesting and fun and safest it can be., especially when they are having a not so good day. the hardest part of the day ,well not sure about that yet.
nice and safe place to work, good benefits and a place to retire
health ins. could be better . but we have it all, benefits, paid vacations, holiday pay retirement plan, etc.
I really enjoy working for Brevard Public Schools. I learned that the job is easier when we collaborate as a team. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to work alongside the parents and students and being able to encourage the students that "they can accomplish anything they put their mind to". I believe that I can make a difference in the community where the prospective school is located as an Assistant Principal if I am given an opportunity.
Substitute Teacher K-12 (Former Employee) – Palm Bay, FL – February 10, 2016
Rewarding if you enjoy the work. Often the school board itself is a pain to work with because many employees are grumpy. This will absolutely show you what skills you need to become a teacher and it was definitely worth the time.
Make your own hours. Rewarding.
Stressful, especially when different schools have different rules.
I enjoyed having the students speak to me everyday. I learned how to work at a faster pace and i also learned verbal speaking, The hardest part was maybe keeping up with the dishes. I really liked all my coworkers they were helpful and nice , also the manager.
A typical day at work starts out prepping for the next day and getting prep done for lunch that day, my co workers are awesome and everyone works and we are team players. Our manager is right there with us....love my job need a second job to supplement income
School Secretary / HR specialist (Current Employee) – Titusville, FL – October 23, 2015
My workplace is fun, we share a lot of laughs but know when the proper time is for that. We have a very supportive and amazing administrative team as well. I have learned that there is definitely not an I in team. My co-workers are amazing, they step in to help when needed and are always willing to help. The hardest part of my job is when I am being pulled in 6 different directions all at the same time, but I always manage to accomplish the tasks at hand. The most enjoyable part of my job is the feeling of being successful.

Head Custodian II (Current Employee) – Melbourne, FL – November 3, 2014
I work with a great administrative staff along with teachers and other staff members, family environment, Everyday I learn something new about the more efficient way to clean and to work smarter not harder. The hardest part of my job is to discipline someone who I respect on something they are not doing correctly. I try to mentor the employees that work under me before it comes to disciplinary actions but if at the end of the day I need to then I will. The most enjoyable part of my job is when a teacher comes to me and reports that one of my custodians is doing a great job, nothing better after a hard days work.
Great Football, baseball, soccer and other sports to watch.
Rewarding experience with elementary students and faculty
Instructional Assistant (Former Employee) – Viera, FL – June 28, 2013
Working with students of any age is extremely rewarding. It is exciting to see a connection when they master a new skill or concept. As an educator, you must also provide each student with a learning environment that fits their needs each day. The faculty and staff that I had the privilege of working with at the many schools I taught at and also volunteered with were professional, and I learned so much from each one.

I loved everything about the job.
