Social Studies Teacher
in New York City, NY

"I worked for the NYC Dept. of Education from September 2005-September 2013. I feel as though no matter how hard we work, and no matter how much improvement our students show, we (teachers are still blamed for anything and everything that is wrong with the system. As for our company CEO, the current mayor of NYC (Mayor De Blasio) is fairly new, and Chancellor Farina is also new, so it's hard to tell if things will change for the better."

Teacher
in New York City, NY

"Being a per diem or substitute teacher, gives you flexibility and the also you are able to visit various schools and experience different types of children. However, there is anxiety because everyday IS the first day of school, there no real support from administration and you can become a scapegoat and accused unfairly."

IT Intern

"I worked with the DOE as part of an internship with CUNY CISDD program. I found the school I was in as a nice working environment with the people I worked with. It was about 25+ people working in the school and the only downside is that they pile on the problems pretty quick last minute."
