I enjoyed my students. The work environment was okay but administration had its time. I formed special bonds with other teachers at my school. Moving on to another school district.

This is a job the you can retire with, it’s easy and comfortable. The people are very friendly. The children are off the chain and will have to be structured on the bus.

I have not worked in this district for over 5 years. At the time that I left, the district was making great strides with incorporating technology. Campus culture was not the strongest, but the bonds on my grade level team were great.

APS great place to work, great support. Benefits are great and to be out every summer is a plus. I recommend APS not just for teachers but they have other great positions.

APS is a great place to work. I feel supported and appreciated as a staff member at my elementary school. My instructional leader is professional, affirming, and is a great mentor to pattern one self by.

The most enjoyable part of my job was working with families, administrators and staff. I enjoyed teaching and empowering PARENTS to be an active part in the education of their child. However, the internal politics on a daily basis were a nightmare! 😒

The county pays little to nothing for subs. It was very hard to go into the schools daily knowing you would be met with such great behavioral challenges and not see the reward for it. Would not recommend.

The kids are not the focus. Administrators more focused on managing adults than kids. Micromanagers, administrators are so afraid about the media than they are quality instruction for the kids.

Students were the most disrespectful but I was still trusting I could handle it but they needed more love at home. Very sad that happens in some schools.

APS pays better than most districts--all things being equal. However, a teacher's job takes a back seat to district initiatives--meaning a teacher's job is not necessarily secure as there is more movement in sites than other districts. In addition, teaching in an urban environment can be more challenging than suburban districts. The professional environment/culture tends to be more formal--last name only. None of this is negative--it just is what it is.

The hardest part of my day is dealing with disrespectful students and they are not given any consequences. APS promotes a culture of ensuring that students and teacher work at their best level to accomplish the goals of the district.
