Demanding work environment
Program Specialist (Former Employee), La Quinta, CAJanuary 6, 2015
Pros: good benefits
Cons: poor balance between work and family life
Wonderful way to make a difference, high stress and little support from management due to unrealistic caseloads. Not a family friendly place to work. A good match for independent self-starters and self-managed people.

Continually searching for new methodology and .making changes
Bilingual Primary Classroom Teacher (Former Employee), La Quinta, CAAugust 30, 2014
Pros: buildings are modern and have updated technology. good air conditioning
Cons: uncredentialed staff work with students on class assignments in after school programs
This is a challenging environment for teachers and administrators who want to make an impact on the lives of students.
Teachers are supported with new methodology and new technology in order to keep records and employ new teaching strategies.
Hardest part of the job is supporting students as they are subjected to tests on nearly a daily basis. The balance of time for learning vs the time spent on testing in the students day could be improved to allow more time for teaching and learning.
The most enjoyable part of the job is serving children who are really in need of a relationship with a teacher who cares about their welfare, their learning and their future.

Long-Term Substitute Teacher - Intervention (Former Employee), La Quinta, CASeptember 4, 2012
For four years, I worked primarily as a long-term substitute teacher in the Desert Sands Unified School District. At each job site, they treated me with the same respect as the regular teaching staff. In short, it was a very professional work experience.
