Had to run!
Teacher of English Language Arts (Former Employee), South Gate, CAFebruary 8, 2015
Pros: decent pay great benies
Cons: corrupt and disorganized
Giant disorganized mess overflowing with scandal from the top down. Support system is frequently faulty, leaving teachers vulnerable. Loved the first couple years--great admin--but after that, it was all downhill. Rats, mice, flying roaches, unsupportive admin, oversized classrooms. 5 years and I couldn't do it anymore.

LAUSD is a great company to work for, but like I said not sufficient funding to keep everyone. Bosses for the most part are good, and my coworkers I pretty much get along with.

Productive Job!
Special Education Assistant/ Teacher Assistant (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAJanuary 26, 2015
A typical day at work consisted of constant rotation for student and breaks. Every child that has special needs required the teacher and I to do research in finding the best method of learning for the student. Love working with the district.

Good For Job; College students and Young Adults
Play Ground Supervisor (Former Employee), Carson, CAJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: works well most schedules, nice co-workers
Cons: no work on weekends, winter or summer break.
So you just got to work and you have to grab a clip board and take attendance and give out snack. While also having to keep an eye on the little ones making sure they dont fight and or run around. The way to keep the peace is to have a whislte and or hand gesture to get everyones attention. The most enjoyable part of the job is coaching the sports teams; baseball, basketball and soccer.

teaching was a rewarding career
Teacher (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CADecember 2, 2014
Pros: steady schedule, decent pay, decent benefits
Cons: absolutely no job security, inflexible schedule
On a typical day I heard my students mention gang activity and sometimes they mentioned people they knew who were killed in gang violence.

I learned how to stay calm during lock downs

Management: I feel as a teacher I was sort of a manager of my students. Of course, I had no ability to fire them or reprimand them if they chose to ignore their responsibilities as students

My co-workers, fellow teachers, were wonderful, supportive, and insightful.

The hardest part of the job was not the students, nor their parents. It was the principals and other administrators.

The most enjoyable part of the job was noticing that the students were learning. Its a lie when the media says our kids are testing low and not learning. They ARE learning. I saw it daily

Fulfilling with opportunity to influence our youth
Teacher Librarian (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CADecember 2, 2014
Pros: teaching
Cons: lack of funding
As a Teacher Librarian within LAUSD, I have the opportunity to influence the lives of our youth through library services and resources. Students that transit the library often want to finish up a last minute project, browse books, or need a safe place to dwell. The library in which I work is busy. In a typical day there are at least 3 class visitations, several teachers, and para-professionals transiting to utilize library services. The management of thousands of resources is the hardest part of my job. Keeping things in order and in the right place for easy access is a challenge. However, the best part of my job is sharing knowledge with others. Discussing, debating or assisting students with the latest novel, research project or even a current event is enjoyable. I love learning and I love being a part of our students' learning journey.
