Stressful because of the adults
Teacher (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – July 21, 2017
Working with our youth is the most rewarding work there is. DPS gives you an extra layer of stress for this difficult work. The district is admin heavy and nobody ever really knows who's in charge or what's going on. Things change arbitrarily and the turn around time for answers is always twice as long as it should be. The additional paperwork being required of DPS teachers is leading to burn out and a ridiculously high turnover rate. The board and superintendent have a privatization agenda and figuring out how they are supporting students, staff, and parents in not possible.
