TEAM LEAD & FITNESS TEACHER (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – May 12, 2019
Typical work days are from 6:30/7a - 4:30/5:30p plus planning outside of work.
The administration is in full support of their teachers, the deans fully support the staff and show up when needed.
Teachers are observed weekly by an IC and GTL. Teachers are given a once a month half day of PD. Teachers are constantly creating goals to work on.
School culture varies based on location. Some schools the culture is great, teachers interact and socialize and enjoy communicating with the administration. Other schools the culture is cold, teachers keep to themselves or have hesitations about expressing concerns or needs to administration, it all depends on the specific administration personnel at the school.

School Aide (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 31, 2018
Office staff is worked to death. Management sucks. They expect you to live your lfe there taking care of kids that are not yours. There is only an half hour lunch break and you are mandated to work 7am- 5pm. They do not tell you this when you are interviewed.
Teaching Assistant for kindergarten (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – July 31, 2018
At SBC there is a high demand to be perfect. One mistake and its out the door. Children are amazing. Higher ups do not like when first year educators have opinions. I felt there were not enough POC teaching although there is an abundance of POC attending the school. There was a lot of belittling and sarcasm, but that comes with the schooling system i guess.
Over all the children and cohorts were the highlight of the day, but i had a major hill to climb being asked to come on mid year and then being let go for not professionally growing.
Amazing children who are willing to learn and come prepared.
Children, co-teacher, assistant teachers
management, dialogue from higher ups, consideration for others
