My overall review of Edgewood Independent School District is that is a growing productive school distict.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Roosevelt Elementary School – April 8, 2015
My typical day of work began with interacting with students walking and parent drivers as they transported students to school. I would help the students safely cross the street. Our school day began with announcements and breakfast. My day as a music teacher was full of various activities ranging from musical instruction and theory, to musical games and folk songs. It would end with a staff meeting or an after-school musical program in which I would teach singing, or instrument playing to a small group of students. Through staff meetings and interactions with students and parents I've learned how to work with others and how to get new ideas or look at old ideas in a new way. Organization is a great key to management and my co-workers arrived at school early and we often had sessions with in our academic discipline to check the progress of campus plans and our interactions with students to help them have the most success. The hardest part of my job was the struggle to keep up with ever-changing technology, but our computer technician really helped us stay on track and up to date. Having my students enjoy learning was by far the most enjoyable part of my job.When students do well on achievement tests or give an enjoyable musical performance, my job satisfaction is complete.
Small size for interaction with students, parents, teachers administration, and central office. Large enough for new students and new ideas.
Funds are not always available to do all that one would like to do to reach more students.
