Park Hill has been a good place to work, but does not offer much in the way of advancement.
Teacher Assistant (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – November 11, 2016
I have enjoyed my time with Park Hill School District. Over the past few years, I have tried to pursue other positions within this district, but I have had no luck in that area. My coworkers have been good to work with and very supportive in my area. A typical day as a teacher assistant in a special education classroom is demanding, unpredictable and very rewarding. I have learned a lot about problem solving, conflict resolution and customer service. My immediate supervisor has been wonderful to work for and a big part of my success.

Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – High schools – August 22, 2016
I worked as a high school substitute teacher at this school district. The district appears to employ many coaches and extracurricular sponsors who teach at the high school level. Secretaries who greeted me in the early mornings were very professional and helpful as well as the security personnel. Rarely did I see an administrator. Hardest part of the job was handling the unexpected and the most enjoyable was interacting with the students. We were required to attend UNPAID technology training. Low pay considering that many substitutes are licensed and hold advanced degrees.

Associate Teacher (Current Employee) – Kansas City, Mo – September 14, 2012
We watch school age kids before and after school normally 6:30am to 8:30am and 3pm to 6pm. We come up with daily lesson plans and other fun activities for them to do which include but are not limited to arts/crafts, cooking projects, outside/gym, math/science, ect. Personally as a mother I learn new ways of handling different situations everyday as well as applying what I already know. The best part of the job is getting to know and spend time with all the kids. The hardest part of the job would be the fact that they don't require any management skills other than 60 college credit hrs in any subject, not even a degree. That makes it hard to work under someone who doesn't know how to manage others but you have to start somewhere. Year to year we never know who our co-workers are going to be because they move us at will to different schools every year but we generally have a good time.
working with the kids, high pay, and full time summers.
split shifts, part time, require no management skills, no advancement, no say in where we work
