Instructional assistant (Former Employee) – Palm Bay, FL 32909 – August 1, 2017
If you love working with the students you will do just fine! A typical day is what you make of it. You must have a pleasant attitude and it will surely transfer to the students. You must be patient and willing to support students in all areas!
Teacher (Current Employee) – Satellite Beach, Florida – July 19, 2017
Politics, state and local budgets, and uninformed advisers make public school teachers' careers more difficult and stressful in addition to the daily challenges met in the classrooms daily. Teachers are collaborative, and work towards collective success for all, students and employees. Salary, benefits, and advancement is less than stellar. These have contributed to morale issues throughout the district and state of Florida.
I love teaching students! It's the best part of the job.
no breaks, red tape, poor salary, mediocre benefits
room for advancement . great working in Schoolboard .
certified custodian (Former Employee) – Palm Bay, FL – June 22, 2017

Speech-Language Clinician (Current Employee) – Port Saint John, FL – June 13, 2017
This was my first year working as a SLP. I have grown and learned so much about this field. I worked along side of great SLPs who helped me develop and learn in my first year working in the school system. My typical work day would consist of scheduled therapy sessions, planning, and IEP meetings. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with my students and seeing the improvements they made throughout the year. The hardest part was coming in to the schools and figuring out how everything was supposed to be done. I had great support that allowed me to be successful in the work place.
Flexible work schedule. The pay isn't the greatest, but it's par for the course. It all depends on what school you work at as to how the experience will be. Case by case, based on which school you spend the most time at.
Cafeteria Worker (Former Employee) – Palm Bay, FL – June 5, 2017
The shifts are short. Good for working moms or retirees. Love working with the kids. Pay isn't great and no room for advancement. Raises do not come often. Good job for someone just looking to get out a little or for extra income. Not really for someone trying to make a living
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.
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
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.
Jupiter Elementary School (Former Employee) – 950 Tupelo road SW Palm Bay 32908 – July 30, 2016
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.

certified custodian (Current Employee) – Palm Bay, FL – July 7, 2016
I work for ele. school. The principal is great to work with and for. He takes the time out of his busy schedule to listen to all staff if and when we have an issue or just want to vent. hes fair and treats alll staff equally. Its my home away from home, the time I have spent working for Sunrise School has been such a great opportunity. love working and caring for the school and kids and staff and parents. all are so friendly Sunrise staff work together to make it great and happy while kids learn so much, . 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.
