Challenging place to be.......
teacher; Department chairman of electives (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – May 27, 2015
I learned to work cooperatively with my colleagues; to discipline; to appreciate what a complex, difficult task it is to teach in this school district. The hardest part of the job was to watch good programs disappear and needed classes such as Home Economics, Living Skills,Agriculture, Art, Music, Shop take a back seat. Students desperately need those skills, which also teach math, language arts, spelling, reading and all of the core subjects which lead to knowledge of work skills and how to get along with people. And that was the most enjoyable part of my job teaching Home Economics and History....relating the world surrounding the student so the could be a positive, responsible part of it.
Hours were similar to my own children; I was valued in what I taught; my benefits were good.
Little parent participation;ineffective discipline from administration.
