Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – Hernando, MS – September 21, 2017
Desoto County Schools is a good school system to work for. The only problem I had while working there is the getting paid monthly and making only 9 per hour. Had to work 2 jobs. Management is great. Would work there again if only the money was there.
My job as SPED Director has been rewarding. I have continually learned in the process
Special Educaiton Director (Current Employee) – Hernando, MS – August 30, 2017
My job as SPED director has been very demanding and consuming. The most difficult part of the job has been accountability and funding. the most rewarding part of the job has been the students and seeing them grow academically, socially, and behaviorally. A typical day began at 7:00a.m. and last until 5:30 to 6:00 p.m. Each day began with reviewing the needs in the schools and individual student concerns. I learned that hard work is rewarding and children are our number 1 asset. I also learned that resources involve so much more than financial. Finding the perfect human resource for students is a rewarding experience.
Working with good people and working with students
Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) – Southaven, MS – August 7, 2017
A typical day at work is busy and fun. Dealing with 3rd-5th graders daily keeps you busy at all time. There's always something to do. I learn a lot of different things everyday. The hardest part is normally calming them down but afterwards everything evens out perfectly. What I enjoy most is seeing the children learn and progress.
CAFETERIA WORKER (Current Employee) – Southaven, MS – August 2, 2017
I would recommend this job for anyone that is just starting out and would love the weekends off and also holidays. The only down part of this job would be these are not paid holidays and the summer off is not paid as well.

A great place to interact with educational professionals and help students realize their full potential. Students are given the support and tools needed to move on to whatever their next step after high school may be.
