There is an underlying expectations that the teacher should have a positive attitude toward teaching It is usually a valued profession. The days are busy and many unplanned events may happen within a single day, depending on several different situations.
Like any large high school, it is hard to be sure all expectations are met.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you actually make a connection to help a student learn how to make good choices or when you help a student learn material the student was struggling to master.

If you're looking for a part time job with a split shift perfect for you. However if you're looking to make a living don't work here. No advancement opportunities for Non certified staff. They will belittle you also.
I enjoy what I do. I love seeing the kids progress and put genuine trust in educators. It’s not a job for just anyone. Children need and deserve people who are invested in them and their success. You have to be open to this environment and have a love for children.
I came to the district to work with my son. I found it rewarding while I was in college earning a degree. When in the school district you have to be mindful that you have to love kids to do this job and I did!
Once i got use to how we had things set up it was a piece of cake.
I learned alot through the kids and the school system period. There really wasnt any part of the job that was hard i was alright with it.
The children really made my day even on MY bad days their energy and jokes were awesome. They also helped alot, i appreciated that.
I was a substitute teacher for the school. I taught grades pre-school through 10th grade, but higher. The teachers, administrators and staff was very respectable and helpful to any of the substitutes in the building. I received break on time and was given plenty time for lunch.
As Substitute Teacher for North Little Rock School District, I present instruction in accordance with an established lesson plans and curriculum to students in a classroom environment; I employ computer skills to organize data and teaching materials. I am adept in employing effective communication and presentation skills to facilitate learning; skilled in effectively monitoring and promoting student progress on all assignments. When managing workplace culture I understand that each person is different and I have to adjust to each individual to understand what is needed. The hardest part of this job is training to motivate the students to want to learn. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you explain to the students the instructions and they finally understand what is asked of them.
A typical day at work as a teacher is similar to other schools. Teaching 6 classes with one prep period. 45 minute periods. 3 different lunches. Freshmen have one lunchtime and grades 10-12 have A and B lunch. different bell schedules for freshmen and they are somewhat isolated from everyone else. It can be isolating as a teacher at times, since there is not often time to collaborate with other teachers and our teachers are not teamed at this time. This should be better next year with different schedule structure. Discipline can be difficult at times, and administrators seem overworked and difficult to get in touch with or to have conversations with at times. Safety is a concern daily, and school supervisors are a necessary element to this school. NLRPD is close by and present at times, due to specific situations. Due to budget issues, holiday pay was eliminated and there are not any funds available to help cover costs for teachers for supplies or needs at times. Morale could be better, and students struggle with deficits in math, science, and literacy. The hardest part of the job is dealing with these deficits, discipline of behavior and not having consistency school-wide with rules and consequences. The most enjoyable part of this job is by far seeing my students every day. Sharing in their lives, their challenges, their victories and successes, and seeing them excel as young adults. Seeing them making positive choices, and standing up for what is right.
Seeing the positive changes that are occurring to make education better and more flexible for students, and seeing them - more...
new buildings, good technology, large school, good principal at HS, sports are competitive.
academics and discipline lacking, need better communication and buy-in between administration and faculty/staff. safety is a concern.
I enjoyed working for the NLRSD in several capacities. I enjoyed the most having Christmas & Spring Break off including the summers. The pay was not that great; however, I believe the amount of paid time off compensated for the pay somewhat.
