Physical Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – June 28, 2018
1. First 1.25 hours prep/break/no classes-ELD instruction for GE teachers. 2. Picked up first class at 9:15am 3. School wide recess 4. Taught two classes, then lunch 5. Taught two more classes, then end of day
Management: objective, fair, even when you disagreed, so I liked that, and often times got what was requested if it was within reason.
Culture: Overall, decent, professional, I stayed away from the problems and was in a different role.
What I learned: a lot about myself and students, and communication skills, etc....
Enjoyable part of job: seeing and working with the students.
Hardest part: behavior (at times, it wasn't a school wide issue).
There are plenty of opportunities to grow and succeed

YEP - Program Leader (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – May 9, 2018
Good opportunity for college students. Time is within mid day, which can be problematic for some or convenient for others. Program time can interfere with finding another job, and balance financial needs.
Youth Enrichment Program Lead (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – April 26, 2018
A lovely district with a community to back it up. I enjoyed this postion for over ten years and I have no complaints. So far, I am working with a stable salary and benifits. I would recommend this district.
Yep Program Leader (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – April 4, 2018
Hours are never increased but pay is good. Seems like they do not want to pay benefits which is why they do not give more hours. Management at site really just depends on your locations. Some locations have better support than where I was located.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA. San Francisco Bay Area – January 26, 2018
The great thing about the job was the adventure; daily or weekly changes. I could be teaching high school pre-calculus this week, and junior high biology next week, or adult school math the next. A lot of my fellow teachers were very supportive to work with. The most difficult part of the job was managing and maintaining a good learning environment, when a class had difficult students.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – December 31, 2017
The opportunity to affect children's lives was both a challenge with the reward of seeing progress. Collaboration with other teachers provided excellent opportunity to improve knowledge and skill. The requirement of developing lesson plans within the guidelines of district curriculum provided an opportunity to use creative talents. Over-all, personality management more than classroom management was the skill most needed. I was successful in assessing a students' area of concentration and build from there.
Enrollment Technician (Current Employee) – Hayward, CA – November 14, 2017
The medical benefits are extremely expensive, and it's good to get hired on as a Sub to start but it seems nearly impossible to get in permanently. When you're a sub you can work from 0-40 hrs week, depends if you're needed. T
Outreach Worker (Former Employee) – Hayward high School – September 26, 2017
Long-term stability is not in the offing. POC do not fare well in this district. Management is in a death spiral against the Board, which is against the Unions. Children are terribly misguided and suffer under racist conditions that persist. 2014 saw race riots in the district, but the management insisted there is no race problem. A student was gunned down (assailant at large), and the district is in denial that there is a gang problem. (Thumbs down)
