What would you suggest New York City Department of Education management do to prevent others from leaving?
Return technical subjects such as Home Economics or Family and consumer science. Also subjects like Accounting and electrical engineering and sociology. Teachers,tenured and untenured ,should have protection against abusive administrators. More school psychologists are needed.
I left to pursue a career in the field that I studied after getting my MS in counseling. There were no jobs as a counselor after I graduated and apparently still no open positions. There is a hiring freeze on new guidance counselors. DOE is not very informative.
I'm scheduled to begin work as a sub paraprofessional.How long does it take to be hired as a permanent paraprofessional. Should i bring my resume to various schools?
Please be aware before you become a sub. These supervisors (principal) do not follow the Uft contract for permanent paraprofessional. They will have you do things that a 1:1 suppose to do. When you explain your self to your union rep at your school they turn a blind eye and become deaf to your concerns. It’s better to be a sub you change schools you don’t have to be in the same school dealing with all kind of nepotism dictatorship and acrimony from staff members. The recent raise is almost making as a permanent para. If you don’t have a degree your salary will plunge becoming permanent. I understand the benefit part. The salary para makes is low income. My advice stay a sub build your own 401 k health insurance. Do Lyft and Uber during the summer or work at a summer day camp. Or sub for the DOE during the summer. The choice is yours
