Teacher (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – August 8, 2018
Despite the way in which the state of Oklahoma treats education and educators, brave and talented individuals show up daily for Tulsa Public Schools. They dedicate their time and money for the betterment of their community.
Gateway to Technology Instructor (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – August 1, 2018
The culture at Tulsa Public Schools can vary, I was lucky to be at 2 pretty good schools where the staff got along and would meet up outside of school and socialize.. The structure can be a little messy sometimes, 2 different times i was going to be moved to different site in the 3 years i was there. The pay is tough to live on with owning a house and other living expenses
Child Nutrition (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – August 1, 2018
Fast paced, sometimes a bit chaotic. Management is appreciative, as much as possible. There is a HUGE language barrier and it sometimes feels as tho there is a preference to the Hispanic culture that is employed by TPS.
Second Grade Teacher (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – July 14, 2018
Tulsa Public Schools is a great district with exemplar leadership. However, the demands and requirements for a public school teacher does not align with its compensation. Teachers work many hours beyond the contracted schedule. The best part of working in TPS for three years were my school staff and students. The hardest parts of the job are the salary, understaffing and difficult behavior issues (prevalent across the district).
Para Educator (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – June 9, 2018
This job was very rewarding in alot of aspects but pay was not enough to live off of for 1 person economically. Helping children learn and communicate in ways they never new how was very rewarding for my heart. Helping teach children with Autism, ADHD, ADD, Deaf, Blind is a special kind of job.
Teachers Assistance (Former Employee) – Tulsa County, OK – May 24, 2018
i enjoyed the time that I spent with the children especially in our small group time that gave me a chance to see what task or subject the child struggled with the most and it was my duty to come up with a way that the child could fully comprehend the lesson so he or she would not be intimidated by the lesson but would overcome it and conqueror it.
Interacting with the children
unreasonable wages, unprofessional co-workers, and no health benefits
Teacher Assistant (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – May 16, 2018
Our Teachers deserve higher pay and equal opportunity to move up in job advances. Also should have better supplies for students. Teachers should not have to supply them to students by themselves or without help from the state.
Substitute teaching varies in schools and subjects
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK 74114 – May 14, 2018
Substitute teaching allows you to teach in many different schools and situations. You teach many subjects so your knowledge needs to be broad. You may find that you are dealing with social issues rather than teaching.
Paraprofessional (Current Employee) – Tulsa, OK – May 6, 2018
I work for an elementary school and I love it. I work in a multiple disability room with a few other paraprofessionals and a lead teacher. We all get along and work really well together and that makes the day go by fast. It is an amazing experience to watch each individual child grow throughout the year.
Very productive and receive training all the time and learn new things
Campus Security Officer (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – April 25, 2018
I had nothing but good experience working for tulsa public schools. There is always great hours working for the schools and police chief and assistant chief are always there to listen and lead the department in training. Active shooter, safety, etc...
