productive workplace
The most rewarding part of the job is being able to help children learn and grow. A typical day at work is being in the classroom assisting the head teacher to reinforce her curriculum. You learn along with your students.

Each School is Different
The DOE has created a culture of school building administraters who are punitive and create a workload for teachers that is practically unmanageable. Teachers are over worked and under paid and many work in an environment that does not feel safe due to the lack of consequences for students who are violent or simply have a serious behavior problem.Each school is different. Some teachers have admins who are supportive and do not fit the norm.

An expansive public school system that I love and to which I devoted my life
I am incredible fortunate to have been able to work at one of the most amazing public high schools in the country, City-As-School. I was able to grow as an educator and human being while supporting incredible students and developing unique and innovative programs.

Nice people / terrible management
Management is in disarray or just not there. Easy job though. Nice folks who can be highly intelligent and all are passionate about education. I got a change to learn some new computer programs on the job. However, the work culture was a bit lacking. A year there, I never heard from management about what our overall goals were or how we were doing. At my level, the work goals shifted constantly with no accountability. Government workplace culture. I liked some of the people there.

Supportive team
I had a wonderful experience working with the DOE and the DECE. The managers and leaders were very helpful, warm, and respectful. I was sad when the contracted ended as it was a temporary position. I would love to work with them again in the future.

Too much politics and gang mentality
Good work ethics are not appreciated. Culture of boys' club, hazing and bullying. Wasting resources and covering up for inappropriate behaviors. Vindictive management.
