Educational Technology Overview
Educational Technology Analyst (Current Employee), Memphis, TNMarch 18, 2014
My current position is one of the most enjoyable jobs I have ever had to opportunity to do. The management team and my co-workers are the best. We help each other all the time with nothing held back. We share information regularly and work together on how to use new technology and new computer programs.

The hardest part of the job happens when I am – more... working with a customer and am not able to solve an issue for them at that right time. I have to get more assistance to help me fix a problem. The most enjoyable time I have while working on this job is going into a classroom to help a teacher with transferring information to her students and they all understand it. I like being a part of keeping students engaged and excited about learning. – less

Fast paced work environment, kept me busy
Clerical Assistant (Former Employee), Memphis, TNMarch 15, 2014
My experience with Shelby County Schools was a delightful one thanks to my supervisor. When I was unsure about certain things, she worked close with me to make sure I gained full comprehension and also helped me expand my knowledge and utilize new skills. She really made me enjoy coming to work. Like every job, there were bad days and rude visitors, – more... but in spite of all of that, I kept a smile on and managed to help them as best as I could. I learned that you definitely have to adjust to different personalities in an office environment. I feel as though, if there is like a family bond within the office, things will go smooth amongst coworkers, but not everybody has an adaptable personality or mentality. – less

Great place to work
Educator (Current Employee), Memphis, TNMarch 2, 2014
The stakeholders at my school are excellent to work with, and I enjoy teaching the scholars who come into my room. I have enjoyed touching the lives of the many scholars who impact my life on a daily. The administration is extremely supportive and provides the staff with effective feedback as needed. The hardest part of my job is at the end of the year – more... when the scholars leave for the summer. The greatest part of my job is impacting the lives of the various scholars who come into my room prepared to learn. – less

Merger caused problems
School Counselor (Former Employee), Memphis, TNFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: benefits, pay, rewarding work at times
Cons: challenging work, chaos created by the merger and municipals
I enjoyed the schedule, with plenty of days off. The pay and benefits are good too. I would have continued to work there, but the merger of MCS and SCS caused budget cuts and a loss of jobs, including mine. There is a lot of confusion and controversy with the education system in Memphis currently, but it is worth dealing with in order to help the kids.

Substitute Teacher (Former Employee), Memphis, TNFebruary 15, 2014
Great experience for people looking to work with children in any grade. I learned classroom management skills. My co workers are great. The hardest part of the job is not being notified of which students have special needs and require special attention.

Overall a good place to work.
Instructional aide (Current Employee), HelenaFebruary 8, 2014
There is no typical day at work working with special needs children. I come in get workbaskets ready for the students, help them with computer skills, writing, reading, snacks, lunch, toileting. I have learned that there is no other joy in a job than working with special needs children.

Pay great, benefits bad, experience was wonderful
Special Education Teachers Assistant/Preschool (Former Employee), Memphis, TNFebruary 7, 2014
Pros: pay, location
Cons: benefits
This was a great place to work while my child was school age where I could be off on summer time/school breaks without needing a baby sitter. Learned a lot about working with special needs children, learned alot from them as well as patience & empathy. I basically left because the benefits changed which did not include spouses.

I retired early from Memphis City Schools and wish that I had not.
Substitute teacher (Current Employee), Memphis, TNFebruary 4, 2014
Teachers know the rewards and challenges of their jobs. Shelby County Schools is going through a transition as it adjusts to absorbing the now-defunct Memphis City Schools and losing suburban schools into independent districts. I love the life and hope to be back, even though it is equal parts frustration and reward.

Pros: job security, colleagues

Love the interaction with students and colleagues. A typical day is never boring and you are always needed. The management and leadership of the district is awesome and necessary.
