Educational Assistant (Former Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – March 7, 2018
Working in the education field is a rewarding place to work. Knowing that you are helping to tech our future. Children are so loving and willing to learn new things daily. The hardest part of the job is when a child is having a bad day and nothing you do can make it better.
Safety Specialist (Current Employee) – Rio Rancho NM – April 11, 2018
I work in a stressful job requiring me to perform another persons job 95% of the time and I am allowed to perform my job 5% of the time. I am unable to accomplish my regular job duties within a regular work day on a regular basis
Many Vacation Days
Long hours, inadequate pay, hostile work environment, bullying, etc....
SPECIAL EDUCATION INSTRUCTIONAL LEADER (Current Employee) – Rio Rancho NM – March 8, 2018
Excellent administration and a wonderful school! Teachers truly care about the students. Most of the parents are supportive. Excellent athletic programs. This school is also rated high in academic scores.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – February 7, 2018
I was a substitute teacher, I got to pick my own shifts and worked as I felt like it. But with this freedom meant that I really didn't get the benefits or management that is normally expected for a job.
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – V Sue Cleveland High School – January 22, 2018
Provided me with a great opportunity to work with special need children and help out where ever I was needed. I learned how the school system worked and the exceptions and demands that are placed on a teacher on a daily basis.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – January 9, 2018
The school site is incredible. I absolutely love the students and staff, but the salary isn't sufficient for all I do here, compared to other sites' administrative assistants. They typically handle what their supervisor/Principal needs while there are additional staff to handle bookkeeping, attendance, etc. Here, I do the job of 5 staff an only get paid the title salary with no compensation for the additional duties.

As a sub you get to choose your own working hours great for busy schedules. You can also choose what age group you are most comfortable working with as well as the functional levels you are comfortable working with ( if you choose to to special education assignments)
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – November 14, 2017
Due to limited funding by Public Education Department and the greater need for Teaching Staff. Elementary Security had to deal more with Parent issues than Mid or Highs school Security. Elementary Security dealt with more Restraining Orders, Court Orders, etc not permitting access to children. Over protective parents feeling their child does no wrong and staff is picking on them.
Elementary students have the same issues and problems as older students. They get into the same inappropriate activities due to lack of experience or home environments. Also the Elementary Students have limited social skills due to only having been cared for by parents and non-diagnosed medical issues until in a group setting.
Due to State and Federal regulations Staff has limited ability to control students and parents. Lack of support by upper management to limit or prevent issues. Lack of respect by parents and some staff.
182 day work schedule. Most Holidays off.
to many federal and state regulations District Administrators did not want negative publivcity.
Custodian (Former Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – October 21, 2017
A typical work day is never the same because of staff, teachers and the students. Be prepared for requests while you are busy doing something else on your schedule from anyone in the school to visitors coming into the school. Teamwork is a must.
SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER (Current Employee) – RRPS New Mexico – October 1, 2017
I love Rio Rancho Public Schools. If you have a strong belief in public education, then you will want to work in RRPS. Strong commitment to student success, better performing students, involved parents. There is a lot of paperwork involved and staff is essentially punished for students not meeting test requirements.
Administrative Assistant/Bookkeeper (Current Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – July 19, 2017
Assist Administrator as needed, coordinated and prepared documents daily, researched and reviewed materials and other related duties as required. Answered telephone, assisted with scheduling appointments as directed. Prepared packets for various committees, meetings and professional advisory committees. The hardest part of my job was oral presentations. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a wonderful people.
First Grade Teacher (Former Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – June 9, 2017
The days were always busy with much teaching and learning happening with the support of the principal and other supervisors. I enjoyed teaching First Grade very much in that it is the foundation where children learn how to read, do math, and other basic skills that they need for future years in school.The hardest part of the job was occasional disciple issues.
Helping children learn and advance in their experience
