enjoyed teaching in this school
Science Teacher (Former Employee), Hazelwood, MONovember 12, 2013
Pros: supportive supervisor & teachers
Cons: size of the school
I taught junior high science. I learned the importance of being a team player. My supervisor and fellow teachers were very supportive. The students were great to work with for the most part. The hardest part of the job was I had to leave my job and join my husband to got transferred in the Air Force.

Mediocre
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Hazelwood and FlorissantOctober 17, 2013
Pros: some form of income
Cons: principals attitudes, too many behavioral issues in class, classes too large for teachers to teach
I was a substitute teacher last year 2012. The experiences differed from school to school or class to class. The children past 2nd grade I didn't care for. There were no support from some of the principals and the children were bad! Lots of behavior problems and children wanting to test you. I would prefer more of a permanent job in the schools so you – more... can get to know the children and routines. Didn't like not having a steady pay or some of the attitudes in the school toward subs. If people didn't sub teachers couldn't take off. Some teachers were really nice and subs always nice because they understand how tough the job was. Overall I did pass at signing up for this school again and I pray for the teachers and the children. I learned that I didn't want to teach children past 2nd grade. I didn't have any issues with letting the children know they were still going to work. I did enjoy the job and decided to get a teachers certification to do it full-time as a regular teacher. Subbing is hard and not for everyone but I still enjoyed teaching the children. Can be fun if you like kids and teaching. – less

Pros: free lunch fast pace environment

Greeting children in the morning at breakfast. Answering phones, making copies for teachers, and making annoucements. I learned how to understand and control childrens behavior.

There were daily activities to encourage students and teachers.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), St. Louis, MOJune 5, 2012
Pros: students committed to learning.
Cons: students that were, negatively impacting good students.
A typical day was in the classroom covering lesson plans provided by the assigned teacher. The most important learnig experience was a confirmation, students are the future, teacher commitment is key. Assigned teachers and other substitute teachers were great to work with. The hardest part of the job, was student misbehavior. The most enjoyable part – more... of the job was, helping our young people learn. – less

Elementary Classroom Teacher (Former Employee), Hazelwood, MOMay 17, 2012
Hazelwood School District encompasses much of North County in St. Louis, MO. It is a great district with potential for growth. As a staff member both as a substitute teacher district wide and as a classroom teacher at Larimore Elementary I felt as though I were part of a team of educators focused on student achievement.

Hazelwood School District was a positive , energetic, and fun environment. The reason I have chosen to seek other employment is because I need consistent work to be able to obtain at least a 40 hour paycheck a week.
