If you have children in school, being a substitute is amazing. Its relaxed, you get to choose when you want to work and sometimes you see your kids when you work at their school!

Great opportunity
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) –  Athens, GAOctober 5, 2017
I got a chance to meet some wonderful people. I gained valuable experience working in the school district. Work environment can be fun and challenging at the same time, teachers/staff can be a challenge to deal with but overall most schools visited had friendly, helpful staff/teachers. Enjoyed assisting nurses with assessments and assisting in front office at schools.
Pros
flexible
Cons
no pay during summer vacation

This could be a great job but the don't support their employees. Low Job Security.
Classroom Teacher (Law & Justice) (Former Employee) –  Athens, GA 30606August 18, 2017
This job is always changing and a lot of uncertainty in the job from year to year. There is a lot of demands in the system. This school district don't seem to plan for long term for it's workers. It seem like this job is on a year to year job with uncertainty in what direction it will take in any given year.
Pros
The pay was good.
Cons
The uncertainty in the direction of the job

Fun Place To Meet Smiling Faces
School Bus Monitor (Current Employee) –  Athens, GAJune 19, 2017
A Typical Day At Work Would Be The Bus Drivers & Staff Greeting You Once You Come In. Management Are Hands-On With All The Employers. Working With The Kids Different Ages Is Very Fun & Very Decisive. The Hardest Part Of The Job May Be The Behavioral Children Who Needs More Attention Than Other. The Most Enjoyable Is Being Able To Make A Child Smile No Matter What Kind Of Day They Had.
Pros
Break In Between Shifts
Cons
Waking Up Really Early

English as a Second Language Teacher (Current Employee) –  Athens, GAJune 12, 2017
The workplace culture is very supportive. Teachers are expected to work hard but the principals and assistant principals tend to be supportive. The hardest part of the job is the long hours teachers have to work. The most enjoyable part of the job are the sweet, inclusive students and the hard-working co-workers who try to make work fun.

Bus Driver (Former Employee) –  TransportationMay 16, 2017
I enjoyed working for CCSD Transportation Department. I left due to a family medical issue. I wish that there was more job security and better benefits. If not forced to quit due to my family medical needs I probably would still be there.

Very flexible scheduling.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) –  Athens, GAApril 17, 2017
The perks of being a substitute is being able to make your own schedule. You choose which days you would like to work. The only downside is the the district does not really prepare you for issues that can arise during the day (student fights, medical emergencies, ect).

Very important job, because we transport precious cargo.
Bus Manager (Current Employee) –  Athens, GAApril 7, 2017
CCSD is a great place to work, as it is parent friendly! Great people to work with. Part time hours. Full time pay.
Weekends off, holidays, and summer with pay. Allows you to work a second job if you want. And you get to keep your CDL even if you decide to leave the job.
Pros
Children friendly for moms. You're off when the students are off.
Cons
The pay is not that great. You have to get up super early.

The Leadership Does Not Back Up Teachers On Behavior
Middle School Teacher (Current Employee) –  Athens, GAApril 7, 2017
There is a lot of bad behavior among the students and when teachers need back up from leadership, it's not there. The students run wild because they know there will be no consequences for their actions. That's why many of the schools at CCSD are failing, and the majority of the kids cannot read, write, or do basic math.
Pros
competitive salary
Cons
no breaks, no support from leadership

Productive workplace
Family Engagement Specialist (Former Employee) –  Athens, GAFebruary 18, 2017
A typical day at work was enjoyable when working with families to help improve their child's education. Learned that most parents don't really know how to help their children to be successful without teacher support in telling them what they can do to help them to better help their child. Parents and teachers don't always work together for the success of the child. Some teachers work very hard to teach children what they need to learn in their classroom and will go above and beyond what's required and others not so much. The hardest part of the job was to know that there were some teachers who just didn't act if they cared if a child wasn't learning their classroom and wouldn't do much to make sure every child was learning. Diversifying school work on the levels each child needed wasn't something most teachers wanted to do because they felt it took too much of their time. The most enjoyable part of the job were the meetings held to help students who were felling in class. The teacher/s, councilor, principal, FES if needed, reading specialist and math coach would meet to discuss things that could be done to help the child and a plan of action would be made during the meeting. Parents were invited. It was always great when teachers would follow the plan and progress would be made.

School nursing is a challenge.
School Nurse (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJuly 7, 2016
A new learning experience everyday, related to the amount of students in the district being 350,000 students with approximately 200 plus nurses working full time. The schools often have a transit population, which will increase the number of health assessments or first time vision and hearing screens depending on the age of the child.
Pros
You do not work nights, weekends or holidays.
Cons
Often short staffed related to number of nurses related to the number of students, as well as increased health needs of students.
