SOCIAL STUDIES TEACHER (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – May 27, 2018
Unless you want to teach in a hostile, mismanaged, vindictive, incompetent poor morale district that could care less about kids, about the same or worse than Betsy DeVos, Stamford is not the place that welcomes teachers. Students pay the price of constant mismanagement and intimidation by management.

Second Grade Teacher Interim (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – August 8, 2017
Most staff, admin. and students (including families) are really great to work with. Most of my experiences have been very positive and I really enjoy working for this school system. Unfortunately, I have put in the effort of a contracted teacher to be passed up for a job I'd be an idea candidate for, due to nepotism. But, that is just a problem everywhere, especially in education.
School Psychologist (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – July 26, 2017
After having interactions with various educators and psychologists across the district it has become clear that they all really work towards the best outcomes for our students. There is typically a very collegial atmosphere. Supervisors and department heads, from my experience, are exceptionally grounded and genuine. Apart from being a quality educator, I think Stamford employs those with a specific personality fit to optimize the work place and outcomes.
I enjoy working in the classroom helping the teachers and working with a variety of students.i like also helping out in the art room because I am a creative person and feel I can bring out the creativity in all children with my art background.
The compensation and the happiness I get from working with the kids.

I learned a great deal from working with the education administrate and the staffs at government center. Everyone here is very friendly. I had little difficultly in explaining things to people who speak Spanish.
Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – February 12, 2017
The majory of teachers are highly talented that teach very needy students. the students come to school with needs not met at home that prevent them from being ready for learning. Much more is needed in the way of additional teachers and materials to ensure that adequate progress is made by most of the students.
I worked in this school system for over two years. Pat Cunningham appears to be nice but is not competent in management as their gate keeper. There was zero feedback, as well as not opportunity for advancement. Security often has to be called, and many times does not respond. Real learning is hardly taking place here because their schools are not well run with good teachers not being empowered.
Substitute Teacher, Newfield School (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – September 28, 2016
Get to work at 7:45 to check in to position and get schedule for day if not in one classroom. Review plans for the day of for the meeting being covered and begin at 8am-2:45. Maintain order in classroom. Handle behavioral issues as necessary. Work with paraprofessional in the classroom if one is assigned. I have learned how to explain the same thing in many ways for children to be able to understand. I have also enjoyed getting to know many of the kids and working closely with them and helping them succeed. I enjoy working with kids and working in the school setting. The most challenging are the children who lose control during the day and make the environment of the classroom more difficult. Finding a way to try to break through to them and get them back on course.
Getting to work with kids and give them a great school experience
