Teacher (Former Employee) – Nashville-Davidson, TN – January 3, 2017
Rocketship is a California based company that has expanded to Nashville...and let's just say they have NO clue as to how to accommodate the different demographics.Leadership in both the network and school levels is far-removed, inconsistent, and incompetent. They win you over with high compensation, and the promise of support/coaching but this is totally erroneous. There is no structured discipline, which allows children to run a muck!! And definitely no real investment in the children because the turn-over rate is like nothing I've ever seen. In 3 years of opening this school has had to replenish over half the staff each year with people steadily leaving. Apply at your own risk!!!
energetic and fun work environment with many young students
Response to Intervention Tutor (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – January 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.
