Be prepared for a lot of student problems that the Principal willnot help out with.
Teacher, English/Debate and Drama Coach (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – April 24, 2017
Students for the most part weren't bad. My Principal would accept all of the bad students kicked out of the other Middle Schools and place them into my classroom. They also had Detention in my classroom at lunch. Principal hid-out in his office. A lot of the students didn't know who he was mid-way through the school year.

unload students off bus, help with learning activities, feeding, and changing of students. the best part of the job was that we was off all summer, the worst part is that you do not get paid over the summer.

Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – March 6, 2017
Seeing the kids helping them to learn new things everyday, that was something I have enjoyed. The only thing is that there was too much work for not enough money. I will have to say Working as a Subteacher had helped to prepare myself on becoming a teacher one day, I have learned a lot being in the classroom observing the teachers and the students that was pretty helpful, I have gain lots of knowledge by being a substitute teacher at Tulsa public school.
PC Technician II (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – November 30, 2016
TPS is a great place to work with a few exceptions. Annual renewal of employment requirement is an actual stressor since there is no guarantee you will have a job next year, and strict clock-in/clock-out rules hinder productivity from time to time, even though it's understandable with the tight budget with which TPS has to manage.
Good pay. Rewarding from the point that the customers openly appreciate your work.
PC Technician (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – November 29, 2016
Loved every second of being a PC tech. The team knows what they are doing and you are accepted as a human not a number. Not many places actually make you want to get up in thew morning and go to work but TPS did.
