Teachers not a priority
STEM Educator (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 7, 2015
At Rocketship, there is a lot said about teacher retention, but with demanding hours and goals, little is done.

The demands of the "Network" are put heavily on administrators who in turn must convey these demands to their teachers and staff, creating a toxic environment at times.

Response to Intervention Tutor (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJanuary 9, 2013
A typical day of work was actually quite routine; there is a whole ritual the students are used to because the after-school program was an extension of their daily routine. Students gathered in a circle, had a snack, an activity, recite their creed, and then get dismissed to go off into their smaller groups. I taught two groups of four students every week after school and tutored literacy to help the students read at grade level. The co-workers were mostly college-aged students and were very fun to work with. The hardest part of the job was having to plan individualized lesson plans for each class weekly, and sometimes the students would have behavioral problems. The most enjoyable part of the job was the rewarding feeling one receives after seeing your students improve reading levels and having a proud look on their faces.
Pros
great kids, fun environment
Cons
not a lot of hours
