Art Mentor (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – February 26, 2018
It was nice to be able to work one on one with gifted students. Each school had an entirely different set up with different available resources and supplies so it was a lot of site specific planning involved. be prepared to be uninformed and carrying a but of supplies with you.
Not enough mentor hours available. Lots of travelling between schools.
Librarian (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – February 13, 2018
I loved my job, I just got burned out. They just keep adding things that we needed to do on a daily basis. It no longer felt that we were doing what was best for kids; it felt more like doing what was best for test scores.
Productive and engaging workplace (substitute teacher)
Local Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – January 24, 2018
A typical day would be fulfilling and implementing the daily lesson plans provided by the teacher. I learned how to manage a classroom and thoroughly teach the curriculum to students. The workplace was always welcoming and friendly, many co-teachers are willing to help. The hardest part is stepping into a classroom that is not yours and getting to know all students within one day. The most enjoyable part is connecting with the students.
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – November 16, 2017
LPS is a great school district. I came through LPS, myself. My kids have all gone to LPS schools, of which two have graduated. The schools I volunteer at have great teachers and administration. They are great people.
School Bus Driver (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – November 13, 2017
Loved working with parents and teachers so that the kids would safely get to school on time. It is still one of the best jobs I have ever had. Early cold winter mornings were the only hard thing about the job.
Excellent working environment, support by administrators, innovative strategies in education
Family Literacy Consultant (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – October 22, 2017
Worked as consultant so no benefits were offered or received. School principals are effective and work closely with staff. Most schools use a team approach to providing educational opportunities to students.
Classroom Teacher (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – October 18, 2017
Offers a competitive salary and direction from administration to ensure student success. Many teachers assigned extra standards and must meet during only plan period. Overall a good place to teach, but getting harder.
Lincoln Public Schools is a good place to work for those who love children.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – September 21, 2017
It can be hectic and confusing at times, but being able to help students learn makes up for any trouble you might have with the job otherwise. Most of the employees are nice and helpful and will do what they can to make sure you are making on okay.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – September 1, 2017
I was a substitute teacher and I was provided help when I needed at most schools. Most of the teachers I observed were excellent and professional. There are many helpful people who are willing to go out of their way and make sure your day goes well.
