Elementary teacher/Dyslexia Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 27, 2017
It was a joy working at Edgewood ISD. I was raised in the District and graduated from there. This made the working environment great because of knowing a lot of the people that worked there while attending school there.It created a productive day at work. Hardest part was having to provide a stable teaching day to students that were at all levels in their education skills.
Teacher (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 26, 2018
Lack of professionalism It's who you know not what you know. Lack of support. Teacher turnover is terrible. Students were great but lack of support. Don't do there unless you want to ruin your teacher record. I recommend Southwest Isd..Judson Isd...Harlandale Isd
Assistant Teacher (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 19, 2017
The success of every child from the first day of school until heading to elementary school. Focusing on independent educational planning for the different learning abilities. Being about to work with community of all diversity.
Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Fine Arts/Career Academy – May 3, 2017
This was my first experience to work in a Public School in the USA. I found everybody very friendly and supportive. The children are very loving and responsive to the efforts you put in and that gives a teacher the highest level of satisfaction. Children often come from weak family backgrounds and so one is aware that they have not had the best in terms of child rearing practices. Given this dynamic, they have great potential which we can do good with.
Small numbers because of the profile of the career academy
Employee (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – March 2, 2017
Too many external factors that have a negative impact on the District (community). Lack of ownership and accountability from many parents. The staff tries hard to reach excellence, this will be accomplished if given the opportunity.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 3, 2016
Typical day would be going to cite and checking in with the office to get all the information needed for the day about the class and teacher that I was substituting for. Everyone was always helpful and friendly.
Custodian/Janitor (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 13, 2015
a typical day at work was nice and calm with plenty to do as soon as the kids are let out of classes and sent home. my co workers were nice and helpful with plenty of knowledge about the job. the hardest part of the job was holiday trash had to be taken out before leaving home. the most enjoyable thing about the job was that it was easy and when you punch out.
My overall review of Edgewood Independent School District is that is a growing productive school distict.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Roosevelt Elementary School – April 8, 2015
My typical day of work began with interacting with students walking and parent drivers as they transported students to school. I would help the students safely cross the street. Our school day began with announcements and breakfast. My day as a music teacher was full of various activities ranging from musical instruction and theory, to musical games and folk songs. It would end with a staff meeting or an after-school musical program in which I would teach singing, or instrument playing to a small group of students. Through staff meetings and interactions with students and parents I've learned how to work with others and how to get new ideas or look at old ideas in a new way. Organization is a great key to management and my co-workers arrived at school early and we often had sessions with in our academic discipline to check the progress of campus plans and our interactions with students to help them have the most success. The hardest part of my job was the struggle to keep up with ever-changing technology, but our computer technician really helped us stay on track and up to date. Having my students enjoy learning was by far the most enjoyable part of my job.When students do well on achievement tests or give an enjoyable musical performance, my job satisfaction is complete.
Small size for interaction with students, parents, teachers administration, and central office. Large enough for new students and new ideas.
Funds are not always available to do all that one would like to do to reach more students.
cafeteria porter (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – February 16, 2014
As a cafeteria porter I was assigned to clean the cafeteria. alot of confusion with administrators and supervisors. This was the first year the district had cafeteria porters. Nobody knew exactly what the order of operations was and management changed direction of the cleaning process often. The pay was not enough and only worked 35 hours a week.
