Special Education Teacher at Prescott School District
in Prescott, WI

"I love problem-solving and actual teaching. I do not enjoy discipline, and ungrateful students. I don't have the support needed for effective class managment. I don't like that I am stuck in a classroom everyday and I don't get the opportunity to do public speaking, research or write."

Special Education Teacher at Wake County Public School System
in Cary, NC

"I truly love the children and their families I have worked with.I hate teaching kids how to take tests ALL YEAR LONG so a district looks good and not being able to go over the basics that sped kids need so badly. Teaching used to be inventive and fun--now we are merely techs teaching like robots to turn children into robots who can guess which answer to bubble 'so they can have a candy party at the end of the year'."

Special Education Teacher at Los Angeles Unified School District
in Los Angeles, CA

What do you like about working at Los Angeles Unified School District?

"I loved my students. My students have Special Needs, and I loved providing them with a well-rounded, excellent education. I also loved my co-workers. It was incredible to see the strides my students made in my classroom."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I did really well with the interviews, because LAUSD was so great, back then. Be soo open to whatever change there is, and just be honest."

What don't you like about working at Los Angeles Unified School District?

"The new administration came in and changed the location code of our school, and that allowed them to get rid of most of our staff, including people who had been at the school over 30 years, and the vast majority of our students. They kept people who didn't support the union (including my union leader). I was the only foreigner, and the new principal didn't renew my work visa, with one check mark, so that was awful and shocking."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Allow people to move to another location, and don't be underhanded. Normally, we had a wonderful administration, before LAUSD wanted to move so many schools to Charter (cheaper, no unions)."
