K-4 Intervention Specialist & K-2 Phonics Coach (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 10, 2016
Uplift Education is a charter here in the DFW area that believes in providing the best quality education for at risk students. Their mission is to send 100% of our scholars to college. Their motto reads, 'Not if, but when!'
As an educator, we were required to arrive for work by 7:30 as scholars arrived to eat breakfast. We were required to stay until carline ended, around 4-4:30.
Management at Triumph Preparatory was amazing. Our leaders valued us a educators and people. They understood the difficulties and challenges of working in the world of education, and tried their hardest to provide a healthy work life balance.
The most difficult part of the job were the hours and pressure of performing. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing our scholars thrive academically and reach their goals. There is nothing like seeing your scholars achieve and have pride in themselves.
Pros
Wellness Wednesdays, work time, recognition
Cons
long hours, pressure

Exciting Work Environments
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 28, 2015
A typical day at Uplift Education would start with a kind, positive greeting at the front desk where basic instructions or necessary documents were given. You then would be directed or personally guided to the classroom in which you were to cover along with an assurance of further instructions left specifically by the teacher being covered. Strong guidelines and expectations were set for the students encouraging discipline and leadership.
Pros
Job Flexibility

Teacher (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJuly 24, 2015
A typical day at work is teaching and growing students. I've learned that Administrators is not always honest with you when it comes to how well you are doing at your job. Management works with certain people. My co-workers were like family, we kept each other encouraged. The hardest part of the job was getting bathroom breaks and meeting unrealistic deadlines. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing students improve and having summers off.
Pros
Having holidays off and working with children.
Cons
Not being supported and not getting bathroom breaks.

Working for Uplift Education is like working with family. With any family there are disagreements, but the family can always resolve them and come together. Uplift Education is a family environment amongst the staff with exceptionally qualified individuals doing all they can to educate the children of tomorrow ages K-12.

Well-intended, Caring Teachers, Underfunded
District Content Leader (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXSeptember 11, 2014
Uplift Education is a network with some really brilliant, caring people. However, it is underfunded which hurts the culture of the network because everyone works so hard and the compensation sends the message that the network undervalues its teachers.
The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the people around you grow and having some part in the growth and development of the adults of the future. The hardest part is meeting the expectations of several administrators who do not agree while still serving the scholars.
Pros
meaningful work, great team members, brilliant people
Cons
short breaks, low compensation
