Pros: receiving many accolades for a job well done.
Cons: not being able to help all children.
Working in the school district, made me appreciate all educators. Educators are not given enough credit for what they have to endure. You MUST have the patience and passion when it comes to being an educator. Teaching is not for everyone. Working in the school district allowed me to have even greater respect for teacher. It's also what motivated me – more... to go back to school and get a degree. I loved working with the children. Watching there little faces light up when you arrive and teaching them how to become independent was heart warming and fulfilling. I've never ever felt more gratified until I started working with children. Knowing that I've played a part in a child's life regarding what he/she has been taught or have accomplished is very self-rewarding. I truly truly enjoy working with children. – less
Staff (Former Employee), Athens, GA – May 16, 2014
Good hours and good benefits. But not much beyond that. They purchased a computer for every student but did not update the network to support the increase. Nor did they add additional staff to support these. The students break the computers and there are no parts to repair them. Lots of frustration from teachers, students, and support staff. Management – more... completely out of touch with what is needed in the classroom. – less

DIR RECRUITMENT, RETENTION, SAFETY, & RISK MGMT (Former Employee), Athens, GA – May 14, 2013
The upper level administration has lost site of the bottom line (children and families) and utilizes fear as the primary management technique for faculty and staff. It is difficult for teachers to create a positive learning environment when they are being treated unfair.

Afterschool counselor (Former Employee), Athens, GA – March 26, 2012
Pros: great coworkers, and management
Getting the kids after school, taking attendance and helping with homework, monitoring the kids playing outside and scheduling game/gym time to play. Management was very fair and understanding with scheduling and a pleasure to be around. Hardest part of the job was keeping your head count with the kids as they leave for the day. I loved working here – more... because you get to bond with the kids and play with them after helping them with homework. – less
