Very productive and interesting workplace.
Patrol Officer (Current Employee), Kansas City, MissouriJuly 16, 2014
Pros: the benefits for my family, and becoming a role model.
Cons: the danger level in some parts of kansas city.
My time as a Patrol Officer was been a learning experience. Providing safety for the youth of Kansas City is only half the the job. The other half is becoming someone for these kids to look up. Motivate them to higher places like college. Very inspiring.

Unorganized and stressful work environment
4th grade teacher (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJuly 9, 2014
This is a tough district to work for. There was minimal support from my administration. I was pretty much left to fend for myself and when I asked for help I barely received any or I would be told that I would get help and the help would not come. It takes a long time to bond with the students and they are also very transient so often times I would – more... start to bond with a student and they would move and no longer be in my classroom. The staff is kind and helpful. I made it through the year because I had great coworkers who offered me great advice and tried to help the best they could. – less

Top Heavy Administration; Management/employee miscommunication
Legal Secretary (Former Employee), Kansas City, MOJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: very diverse
Cons: management was dysfunction
Former administrators with egos and their fav five working under them (Public Relations, Asst. H.R. Administrator, etc). Many principals and teachers were not knowledgeable of their required job duties. A lot of miscommunication and non-communication on matters of importance. Many uncertified teachers who lacked knowledge, skills and ability to perform – more... their job efficiently. Hopefully they are being weeded out. Great need for caring social workers in every school setting! Inefficiency and non-production is promoted. Honesty and integrity is not well received. – less

Pros: free lunches, free dental visits for the children and after school care and tutoring. great benefits, vacations breaks lunches so on.
It is great working in the school setting, The staff here are great team players, Our principal is a fair person who appreciates all we do! The hardest part of my job personally is having to interpret to a large group of parents meaning all school, The most enjoyable part is the children, I get to work with a diverse group of kids who also appreciate – more... all I do with them if its teaching, giving advise or cleaning a cut and putting a bandage on them and the trust parents have towards me, Helping them fill out paper work they may not understand well, I have been doing this for close to 16 yrs. as well as after school care. I love my job but am now trying to relocate to California preferably Imperial Valley. I am still employed for this school district as of this year 2013 hopefully relocate for 2013-2014 – less
