DIRECTOR (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – May 21, 2017
The job is rewarding but the pay sucks. The district values the board members and the superintendent (who does not have teaching experience and believes teachers are overpaid) more than they value the teachers.

Director of Education/ Inaugural Principal (Current Employee) – Hope Academy – May 1, 2017
My job essential functions involves building and nurturing relationships, working with dynamic individuals. Helping young people by molding and shaping their minds, to become productive citizens of society. help people them to success.
I enjoy when teens graduate from High School , and go on to College or Career. In the current line of work I'm in I guess the hardest part is to see the teens recidivate.
To be recognize by your peers for a great job, and when teens say something as simple as "thank you"
Wish their was more time in the day to engage youngsters.
Social Worker (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – May 1, 2017
I've only been working here for 7 months. During this time I have noticed numerous accounts of "I don't care/its not my job" attitude. People complain about management, but are unwilling to do anything to promote change. As a result, the children suffer. The program I work for would be beneficial to the students if employees actually do their job, not cuss at the children, and want to make a real difference in these children's lives.
Great risks of bodily harm in the program I work in and this was not disclosed during the interview
Bus Assistant (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – April 29, 2017
Great job, but it was not my dream job. I learned patience and compassion. Co workers were great to work with. The hardest part was getting close to the children and them having to move on to another school the next year. I always missed them but was happy for them.
