Long Term Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – North Little Rock, AR – October 25, 2018
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.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – North Little Rock, AR – February 25, 2018
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.
Teacher (Former Employee) – North Little Rock High School – February 21, 2018
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 themmore... struggle but for it to be productive, accomplishing far more than they ever thought they could.less
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.
Human Services Worker (Former Employee) – North Little Rock, AR – November 17, 2017
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.

During my time at NLRSD, I met some wonderful people that encouraged me to further myself and take the Para Professional test. They became my support team and to this day, they still are. I am very Blessed to have them in my life.
