Unsupportive Administration
Classroom teacher (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXSeptember 20, 2018
I would not recommend teaching at this school. Although the vision and dream is incredible, the hiking is amazing, the reality of the work environment is very sad. Administration picks and chooses who they will support and who they treat poorly. You do not have lunch break. You can not get your students the support they need and legally deserve. They do not identify students with special needs for years at a time. Some of the staff are wonderful kind people but most are new or alternatively certified teachers, so the quality of instruction is lacking. There are better, more loving places to work.
Pros
Loving teachers, hiking, eco-welness program, health based
Cons
No lunch break, poor admin, no staff development and teacher training is lacking

Amazing place to work if you like kids
Aftercare Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 11, 2018
Like most child care related jobs, the mood of the kids sort of sets the pace. You have days where everyone is happy and gets in on zombie tag, and you have days where you have a few grumps that need one on one discussion and esteem boosts. it was always an adventure.
Pros
short work days and lots of exercise
Cons
tiny people have big attitudes

Fun, Creative and Love working with Kids
After School Teacher (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJune 2, 2017
The most enjoyable part of this job was watching the kids grow and getting to be a good role-model for them. My favourite thing was facilitating games and teaching them good sportsmanship. This is one of the best jobs I've ever had.
