After 10 years in this district I quit!
Teacher (Former Employee) – Bluffton, SC – July 10, 2019
Teacher retention is a hot topic here in Beaufort County. In the news you will hear the district blame it on the "high cost of living". Well, I know a handful of ex teachers who still live in the area so it can't be just that! In reality, it's the stress placed on you as well as a culture of micromanagement, spending more time collecting "data" on the students than actually teaching, and overall high and unnecessary (did I already mention) stress, sprinkle in some psychopathic administration like the ones at Bluffton Elementary and you have a recipe for a horrid place to work
My suggestion, look at Jasper County or Chatham County, it's what I did, if you insist on living in this area. Heck, the car wash down the road from my house looks more enticing job wise compared to this district.
Bottom line: Stay away from the Beaufort County school district!
