The typical work day is busy depending on the subject and type of classroom you are assigned. The hardest part of the job is to reach all kids especially in an inclusive setting if you are in an overcrowded class.

Extended Day Teacher (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – January 6, 2017
At work I am with kids and I watch them interact with one another showing how they help one another and being good friends. I also interact with the kids to make sure they are treating one another with respect. What I learned is that kids will be kids at the end of the day and they will learn right from wrong and it will make them better one day. I get along with all of my fellow co-workers we all enjoy each other everyday. The hardest part of the job I wouldn't say there's an hard part but keeping them out of trouble I would say can be a hard sometimes. The most enjoyable part of the day is making sure the kids have fun and also learning something to take home to their parents at the end of the day.

Social Science Teacher (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – October 19, 2016
Does not value staff, is about who you know, not what you know. Hires young principals that have only 3 years of teaching. Treat staff unfairly if they don't like you for any reason at all. You can be laid off if their friends need a job.
lose your job at anytime, SAE tests are $200.00 per exam
Days are hectic constantly working all day, but its much worth it being that your doing for the kids no matter what school you may work at the students will be the best part of the job. I personally love working for dcps but the pay needs to be better for the amount of work and time all educator put in.

Teacher (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – August 30, 2016
A typical day of rotating classes for ELA and Reading with teacher and student interactions. I learned how to be an effective teacher at DCPS with excellent classroom management skills. My school had quality administrators who cared about the staff and students. My team of co-workers were the best at the school. The hardest part of the job was balancing administrative and academic responsibilities at the school. The most enjoyable part was of course teaching.
