Teacher and Administrator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 18, 2018
The typical learning day was fast pace with several subjects including Reading, Math, Writing, Science, and Social Studies. All the lessons included whole group teaching, small group teachings, and differentiated instruction. The hardest part of the job was pacing, making certain to include all the subjects and skills according to Common Core State Standards. Sometimes the job became difficult due to behavior challenges in the classroom and community challenges outside of the classroom. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching student progress to the various levels and learning.
There were Prep periods, lunch breaks and recess daily
The breaks were usually in the morning for Primary grades

I loved working here because I graduated from the high school I had the opportunity to be staffed at. It was great to be on the mentoring and authoritative side of things and seeing how much work goes into providing a safe environment for students.

Cps is a great place to work if your all about helping the children of chicago. They offer great benefits and you can advance within the system. They offer you paid time off and sick days. The only knock is they don't give you a chance if you get in trouble its off with your head no matter if your innocent.

This employer reminded you constantly the reason for your efforts were overall for the children. Without this reminder, the individual may resolve with a bit of reluctance when approached to overextend their time.

Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 29, 2018
Typical day starts early. The children start arriving to the cafeteria for a breakfast serving. They are lined up according to grade/classroom and walk to their respective rooms. The disciplinary climate is defined by the principal. The day goes by quickly, as during the day the students are moving to music, or gym or playground or lunch or bathroom, etc. The classroom management is perhaps the most important aspect of the day. Keeping the students safe and comfortable are of critical importance. Visiting the library class, for instance is when the children are not accompanied by their teacher, like art, gym or music. They seem to prosper and enjoy the variety they experience in their daily routine.
Bilingual Elementary School Teacher (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 28, 2018
I worked with 3rd. and 4th grade Bilingual students. My position was self-contained and I worked with 25-30 students a day. My room was exceptional and my students were all eager to learn. Teaching is a wonderful career to have, but you must be willing to work with all types of students and be willing to challenge them.
