Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 10, 2018
I started working with Richmond Public Schools as a Tutor, then became a Substitute Teacher, a full time teacher and back to a substitute teacher. The experience overall was rewarding when I saw the children grasp a concept and begin to prove their understanding of it.

I enjoy working as a substitute teacher. I enjoy working with children. I really enjoyed the internet sign up system which allowed me to choose which schools and subjects I would work. It was only a temporary position until I found permanent employment.
help offered by administration and other teachers
some of the children had a very bad attitude toward school
Exceptional Education Teacher (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 24, 2018
My work environment can be very stressful and ever-chaning; however, enhancing the lives of inner-city children and youth does not come with a manual. I take each day in stride, and view work as a "glass half full" experience.
Relationships with students/staff, positive impact, benefits, hours
Property / Supply Technician (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 15, 2018
Too many politics, had to know the right people for advancement. Management was not good and had people who were not good managers. Yearly contracts were how employment worked, but contracts were never guaranteed.
Summer Tutor (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 9, 2018
Great place for up and coming teachers or learners. It is a good place to start off a teaching or tutoring career. The one thing I did enjoy were the kids were always willing to learn and love to express their ideas and opinions.
Great City but this employer needs to work on its culture

The system could use some improvements as could all systems. They can get a more cohesive board and stop changing the leadership so often. The persons intended to protect get the short end of the stick...children.

Fun and creative environment for kids and adults to learn about art. Owner cares deeply about employees and students. Flexible working arrangements to balance work and home life. Great team of teachers and employees

The students are truly the reason you clock in everyday because the administration is deplorable. You must constantly go in your own pocket if you want supplies and the bigotry and disrespect is an unfortunate reality. This is NOT the case for the entire district, however, it is a reality where poor leadership resides.
