GOPHER (Former Employee) – FAYETTEVILLE,NC – October 29, 2013
The headmaster is very harsh and has a hardened heart. At times he doesnt realize that we're all working towards the same goal. As a visionary, he has not fully lived up to what the school could be. His wife dumps all of her problems and worries on everyone else. She is an emotional wreck. The accounts manager has been robbing them blind for years and they continue to allow her full access to all monies. The son will not continue this business because he is not part of the vision he is strictly sports related.
Meeting new people
Long hours, No benefits, Harsh and cruel work environment, Very stressful.
Theater Teacher (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – February 16, 2017
Atmosphere is very bureaucratic. There is a heavy emphasis on athletics while the arts are given the short end of the stick. Co-workers are friendly and supportive, but the administration can be stifling.
Priorities lie in appearances rather than expansion and growth.
Trinity Christian school was an excellent job location to work at, because the environment was safe, and orderly. I learned that you have to be able to be alert for sudden changes in pace. The management of the administration was excellent because he ensures that the school is a safe, clean, and orderly environment for the students that attend the school. The culture of the school is to provide the best basic, academic Christian education for students and their families. The hardest part was the change of pace in unexpected situations. The most enjoyable part of the job was the interaction with and to the children in the classroom, and on the playground.
Special accomodations/ excellent interaction with staff and adminstration
Inability to quickly adjust to change in unexpected situations
I very much enjoyed working at this daycare. I had the chance of working with babies ages 6 weeks to kids of age 4. I did not want to leave but I found a better opportunity with benefits.. Trinity had no kind of benefits for employees but they were also a private facility.
Office Manager (Current Employee) – Forest Hills, PA – July 10, 2016
In this job you are a jack of all trades. There is never a dull moment. You are constantly multi-tasking from taking care of student and parent needs to processing H.R., database management and assisting teachers and Administration with their various tasks. Event planning is a big part of this position as well. Working with the students can be very fulfilling.
Faculty (Current Employee) – Fairfax, VA – April 12, 2016
Any private school, even in the DC metropolitan area, will not be able to pay as much as the public school system. That being said, Trinity does its best to make up for the lack of pay in other ways. You can pray with your students and talk openly about your relationship with God. Employees can apply for financial aid for their child's tuition and it is often granted. TCS is a K-12 private school so there are responsibilities outside of the classroom that add to the workload like carpool (no busses for students), seminar (a 30 minute block at the end of every day), etc.
It's a great place to work if you're able to make about 10-20% less than FCPS and LCPS.

Student Services (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – February 26, 2015
The staff is very caring and accommodating. I enjoy coming to work because the kids bring me joy. I start my day with recess for all grades. After that, I move on to class time where I grade papers and work beside the teacher. After school, I work the daycare. It's a fun environment for the kids. We have tons of things to do from movies to ping pong, to pool. Our games and arts and crafts fill 3 entire closets, its amazing. I've learned many skills in this job that helped me to be a better leader for the kids.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Windsor, CT – June 9, 2014
On a typical day I enjoyed challenging students to excel in reading, writing and math. I learned how to administer the DRA and especially enjoyed doing mini-lessons and guided reading with the students. My co-workers and the head master of the school were a joy to work along side as we endeavored to help students succeed. The most difficult part of my job was dealing with parents who did not wish to work together. I believe teaching is a partnership and if a parent does not work with the teacher it is not a pleasant experience. The most enjoyable part of teaching to me is when a child learns something new.
Learning Center Monitor (Current Employee) – Bradford, AR – April 21, 2014
I go to work and answer flags or hands. I pass out tests and give vocabulary words. I have learned a great deal of patience in the last few months as far as some students go but there are times it is difficult to expect discipline from some some students while others seem to need more entertainment. I love the people I work with. I have know them most of my life. They had an impact on my life and I hope to pay it forward and be able to have one of our students say I had an impact on their life. The hardest part of the job is watching the kids go home to a less than desirable conditions knowing there is nothing I can do but pray for them. Not all of our students are like this but the few that are break my heart. The most enjoyable part of my job are my girls. I have the privilege of being mom and teacher and it feels amazing. My girls don't always like it but they thank me for being there with them and not out in another job that would take me away from them.
Enjoyable and challenging place with great atmosphere.
Cafeteria and Kitchen Manager (Current Employee) – Fayetteville, NC – April 14, 2014
I love working around children!! There are so many at the school that it can't help but keep you young and energetic. Although at times it can be challenging because with so many different age groups from 0-18, you have to keep up with allergies and all of the different preferences of both faculty and students alike. That is the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is knowing I am a part of something that makes a big difference in someone's lives even if it is as small as giving them a healthy meal 5 days a week. To me, it is worth it.
