I have taught in several situations--inner city, parochial, alternative school, on-line school (P.A.S.S) and believe my twenty years in the Parma City Schools were the best. The last twelve years at Valley Forge High School stand out as the most creative, productive years that I experienced during my twenty-eight years of teaching. The staff was supportive and the administration allowed me wide berth to be creative.
building are older in the district, and some don't have air conditioning so early openings (August) can be tough
Parma Schools is a nice place to work, I enjoy what I do as a Bus driver, I have a awesome supervisor, He is pretty fair, I enjoy working here at Parma, Need more money, I feel we are under paid as driver, Because we do a lot, It would be nice to get a raise, This is the lowest I have ever made as a Bus Driver.
Very nice place to work
The money is good as a Bus Driver
Avoid working here they treat people vary poorly. Vary poor rated district in overall scores They need a new superintendent They don’t care about the poor training that they give to potential drivers
Teaching in a district that is supportive of innovative ideas is even better! All teachers need a raise ~ all teachers need less stress from poor educational policy made by unqualified legislators ~ and all teachers could use greater morale. This is progressive, responsive to employees and implementing new strategies to be a leader in education.
Great, consistent schedule, colleagues are amazing
Respect from the public
I worked there for 32 years. Pretty easy going.Assigned jobs and left alone to complete them. Great benefits and decent pay.Always opportunity to switch jobs through out the system.
Benefits.Payed time off.Working environment.
I enjoyed the students and my colleagues helped me to grow professionally. Unfortunately, the district has been financially mismanaged, leading to a stressful working environment.
At Parma, I was a substitute teacher for the district. Each day broght new opportunities and challenges as I changed schools, grade levels, and disciplines. The job was rewarding in that it provided opportunities to work with students of many ages and backgrounds. It was challenging in that I was placed in different classrooms each day.
working with students
No continuity of assignments
I would start my work day in the classroom and work with the children one-on-one on the computer doing different programs the teacher had set up for us. Varying from website games to educreations to microsoft word to switches, etc. I would then assist and monitor the student to all their classes, lunch and then return to the classroom to complete life skills one-on-one with each student. There were 9 students in our classroom and I would see each one in 15 minute intervals. I would also on occasion help with math, reading and writing as the teacher needed assistance. Through out the day I would assist the students with and personal hygiene or toiletries care they needed. All of my coworkers and superiors were amazing individuals who you could tell loved their jobs. Most enjoyable part of the job was watching the children learn, grow and reach all there goals with knowing I helped them get there! The hardest part of my job was putting in my notice when I moved to a different county.
Making a difference in the students lives.
Not much opportunity for over time...
I have been employed with the PCSD for 21 years. As a second career teacher my past experience in the "outside world" gives me a clear vision on how dedicated and hard working the teaching staff in this district are. This is not a nine to five job! The rewards are seeing our students grow and succeed. We are always looking for ways to improve ourselves and stay current with the changes and future advancements of 21st century education.
I help set up audio and video equipment for filming and production of sporting events. I have learned a lot of technical information and details on running production. The hardest part of the job is getting the exact shot and being able to focus on a moving player at the same time to get the perfect video clip, it is a challenge but I definitely love the challenge more and more everyday.
I was self supervised which was nice. I knew what I needed to get done and did it. My boss was great and so was my co workers. Enjoyed by job for the most part but compensation was terrible. Benefits were fantastic. Hardest part of job was nite shift and juggling the kids being a single parent and working at nite. Most of the school employees were like family and that was great. Job advancement was very limited and there was no raises for 5 yrs. Left for day shift and more money.
very close to home/great benefit/employees like family
salary too low, limited job advancement
