Teacher (Former Employee) – Clovis, NM – January 15, 2018
A typical day would begin at 7:00 am and end at around 5:00, teachers always put in more than an 8 hour day, it's part of our dedication. I loved working for CMS, I only quit at 20 years because I had too, otherwise I would have probably stayed for 30 or more years.
I was able to follow a passion of teaching
too long hours and under appreciated for those hours
Special Education Data Coordinator (Current Employee) – Clovis, NM – June 27, 2017
I have really enjoyed working with the company, I was given an opportunity to move up which does not happen very often. There is great moral in the workplace, which makes it easy to come to work and be successful at my job. Both of my directors are great to work for with a wonderful attitude and always has an open door policy. The hardest part of my job is dealing with my deadlines as I am at the beck an call of other staff members to give me the information I need to complete my job an be able to submit accuracte data.

Educator/Coach (Current Employee) – Clovis, NM – March 30, 2017
Great place to help the future generations. Education is a difficult profession and I commend anyone going this route. However, my Bachelors degree isn't good enough and I need a Masters degree just to make $50,000 per year.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Clovis, NM – February 26, 2017
I guess I didn't think that much about the environment because I was doing exactly what I was called to do! I was there for the kids and though much of them were ruff and tattered it was still my calling. The admin is always going to be over powering. They are following the states direction who follows the national standards and then get off on their own little tangents. Overall, if you love to teach, this is a good environment.
Until the end I was allowed to teach.
The state/federal government got in the way of me doing my job well!
I am Fond of my Co- Workers I am there to learn and sink in all the great advice and training that i am able to obtain.This is great experience for my career, and i hope to be given more opportunities such as these to work with great students. Its a constant day of repeating your self. being in the special education department, there is no question that there must be consistency and structure which is just a part f great classroom management .My great part of the day is when i get those thank you looks from my Kids, they are so bright that i feel so proud when they realize they can be just like the other children and actually attend different classes and make friends with kids out dies of our classroom.
School Social Worker (Current Employee) – Clovis, NM – July 9, 2016
I counseled Special Education and General Education students. I worked 8 hours per day. I was able to learn many ways to help kids learn coping skills and assist them in socializing appropriately with others.
Loved working with the people I worked with in finance department. Great place all around to work at. District truly cares about the community and the students. Its like working for a family when you are in need they are all there for you.
Custodian (Current Employee) – Clovis, NM – May 15, 2015
The days can be long but the job has good bennifits and job security. The summer hours are hard we work 10 hr shifts to clean the building for the coming year. the job is a very physical one and you will work.
I never know what is going to happen at work, a typical day cannot be predicted. There are so many scenarios I have been told that it will take over a year for me to become even a little comfortable with the secretarial job. I have learned to multitask, use the attendance program to monitor excused/unexcused absences of students, and how to register students from within or out of district. Micromanagement is the best way to describe this particular individuals management style. You are expected to respond to situations the way they would....which is impossible, because no two people think alike. Working with another individual who is equally as picky as the 'boss" is frustrating...I only have one other coworker that I must deal with, but I feel there is a "pecking order" I feel that what ever management does to her, she does to me. The hardest part of the job is the emotional stress you feel when you are made to think you are not doing your job well enough, even though it is supposed to take a year to learn everything. The most enjoyable part of the job are some of the other co-workers who are supportive and caring.
An hour for lunch.....if you get to take it.
A substancial amount of work for basically minimum wage.
Help Desk and Support Technician (Current Employee) – Clovis, NM – January 8, 2015
Being a Technology Specialist at Clovis Schools is a pretty nice job. You work pretty much the hours the students are in school and the people are really friendly, almost like a family environment. The day to day consists of answering phones and troubleshooting school staffs' technological issues.
