Social Studies/Dual Language teacher (Spanish) (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY 11223 – June 13, 2017
Working for the NYC Department of Education is learning balance the good with the bad in order to focus on the most important part: teaching. It's tough given the amount of paperwork and requirements forced upon teachers can sometimes lead to teachers burning out more quickly and not allowing for more flexibility with what at the core of education, which is the actual teaching. The benefits are good though and there is satisfaction in teaching and getting kids to learn, but the paperwork and the bureaucracy can make a negative impact on the experience.
Dean of Students Assistant. (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 8, 2017
As a Dean's Aide, there's not many negative things to say. The pay wasn't very much, but the excellent benefits made up for that. It was part time, and I wish it were full time. I absolutely loved working for the Department of Education. My bosses were all great, my colleagues were great, it was a fun, happy, outgoing environment. I would have never left this position if not to complete my degree quick enough to enter the following Police Academy.
Para-professional/ Certified Teachers Assistant (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – June 5, 2017
Working as a substitute paraprofessional has been very rewarding. The job is great for anyone who needs a flexible schedule and who doesn't have a lot of bills to pay and/ or dependents. It is very difficult to survive on this income alone. Even working all 180 school days would only amount to about $25 k. In NYC , more than half of your salary would go in rent alone.
short work days / summer & holidays off
No pay for summer & or holidays. Master Budgeter Required

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 4, 2017
You have a choice of what days you want to work. I am a Graduate student so I prefer to be a Substitute teacher with the NYC DOE while finishing my degree because the days are flexible and less stress with managing with papers. I've always loved working and helping children to learn and I feel that this is a good way for me to work with them and get the experience while going to school.

Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 2, 2017
Teaching in NYC is hard, but substitute teaching is harder! However, your time is your own. You can choose to work when you want. The days are set by you. But its challenging bc working with children in the inner city is always stressful.
