Get rid of management that are bullies.
How can teachers teach if they are not allowed to get things ready while in the room with the children while at the same time not allowed out of the room for any planning time. You can’t have it both ways.

I went in for my interview, and I felt like it went great, even took in some certificates and the lady interviewing me said she’ll keep them for my file and they were going to call my references and then we would move forward. Well 3 weeks later and no call or anything, I even messaged the people I listed for my references to see if they had called yet and they never called them, so I applied again, I got called for a phone interview and I told her my situation so she said she was going to give them a call and she’d call me right back, 2 weeks after that she finally calls me back just to ask me if I was still interested I said yes and then she asked what hours I could work, she said awesome and that she’d call me back. Well she never called me back and I got an email a week after that phone call saying they were going to move forward with someone else. I was so upset. Seems very unprofessional place.

Pay people a better starting salary. Bonuses and having overtime should be okay! Felt like there was little room for advancement, and few benefits (ex. 401k matching, etc)

My coworker tried to get me in trouble by lying about something that I did not do to a child. Social services got involved and I waited 6 weeks without being allowed to come to work to see the outcome. All allegations against me were found to be unsubstantiated. I can no longer work with this coworker and left La Petite to find something better.
