Work with Aggressive Adolescents- Everything is your fault
Teacher (Former Employee) – Greensburg, PA – December 21, 2018
If you are lucky, you are trained in proactive behavioral management and restraints before you begin. You will get hurt. You are not allowed to protect yourself, only other students. Management will blame it on you when you are stabbed, beaten, bit, urinated on, etc and make you take time out of the classroom to get the same training you already had as a "refresher."
Most times, if you fill out the paperwork correctly, worker's compensation will pay most medical bills. However, many coworkers found there are untold limits.
I was lucky and had management come and go through my time there, but every single one ran it differently. All but one managerial staff , blamed staff for injuries.
Some staff are extremely helpful, others create a hostile work environment and will report other staff to authorities. (During my time, all abuse reports were considered unfounded by police.)
Minimal resources and supports for things to actually help your students. Anything that you purchase for your classroom will be destroyed.
In summary, it was a great opportunity for a new teacher to see how poor management wreaks havoc on a school. However, not a place to have a career if you like your teaching certificate.
Maybe new management and a new company name will help with the environment.
Unsafe Work Environment, No consistency, poor management
