Great small town feel learning environment which values innovative ideas
Teacher (Former Employee) – Camden, SC – September 7, 2017
Workplace that values exploring new and innovative strategies to increase student learning. The district values integrating technology to give students an education that will allow them to compete in a global society. The most enjoyable part of the job in Kershaw County schools is the willingness and eagerness of the students to learn. The most difficult part of working at this job is the application of many interventions simultaneously which makes it difficult to make valid conclusions about results. The most disappointing part of the job is the lack of help to employees in the case of a catastrophic illness. A less than efficient job bank for sick leave is offered that does not meet the needs of many employees. The workplace culture is relaxed yet professional. The work day is full which starts at 7:30 and ends at 4:00. The faulty ratio at many schools makes it imperative that many teachers wear many hats and take on extra duties.
small atmosphere feel making teacher collaboration enjoyable
little time for training before new techniques are expected to be initiated
I loved the job just not for me. You go in early and get off early. You get to see smiles on all the kids faces and my manager was hands down the best. You have go have a mind set of team work, without it the kitchen will fall apart. Had great times.
Growth in enrollment and good pay, but management of teachers was ...
Teacher (Current Employee) – Camden, SC – July 11, 2017
Pay is very competitive with surrounding districts, and the schools are growing, but sometimes management by principals is hit or miss. Required duties outside of teaching was normal but not always considerate of each persons situation. PBIS allows some discipline problems not to be dealt with by admin.
Good Pay for Teachers
The culture was not good for teachers, Some teachers were favorites, and others were targeted or ignored.
Was a very enjoyable place to work. Now, Big Brother is watching. Hostile environment. The board listens to the superintendent. The tail is wagging the dog. The district office is full of his minions. It is sad to see a once wonderful, top notch district, fall to such disarray from an outsider who has a known track record for doing this in every district he has worked. If you have your own thought process-don't come here. If you are a brown noser-you will love it here.
It"s a very exciting job you get to meet new people from all over the world .Learn about different event with horse shows etc. Its just so much you learn in the hotel business .An you have to have good people skills an patient is the key to it all.

if someone was to complaint after you had done all you can
I enjoy working with children on a daily basis. I have learned to be patient, proficient, effective and proactive while working here! The management is excellent and have taught me a great deal. My co-workers are great and they all have one goal in mind and that is to help to expand minds and fill them with knowledge. There isn't any hard part about this job but it is challenging at times. The joy of this job come from seeing children learn all that you know and they are grateful everyday
Workdays are great with many fun-filled activities and surprises for students to participate in throughout the school year. Diverse population of students that are genuinely respectful and eager to learn. Never had any management problems since I have been teaching. My co-workers have been supportive and helpful. The hardest part of the job would be to raise the scores for some students that are below-basic in reading or math. The most enjoyable part of working in Kershaw County schools would be the students and parents because they are very interested in their education and want to succeed.
not enough planning time for teachers--meetings, conferences, and making copies take up most of the time throughout the week--sometimes no planning time at all.
