A very stressful environment due to lack of staff and management at that time
Special Education Teacher III (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, MO – January 20, 2019
When I first started working with DYS, I loved it, but as time went on, it went down hill. I went through 2 facility managers, 5-6 teachers, and numerous youth specs. People would often get stuck doing extra hours/shifts, due to no shows or call outs. I had to do the job of 3 people at times. When teachers would leave, I continually had to restructure the classrooms and place the students in the correct curr. due to teachers not leaving lesson plans, etc.
My Educational Supervisor was great!! I just wish he could have helped me out more to elevate some of the stress and I would have stayed!! He was always willing to help out whenever he could!!
free lunchs, Pto, benefits
no breaks, lots of no shows/call outs so you had to stay until somebody came to relieve you, pay is very low for the state
