Teacher

Teacher (Former Employee)
Hanahan, SC

I worked at Berkeley County School District full-time for more than a year

ProsI love teaching the students!

ConsWorst school system I have ever worked for, and I have worked six others in several different states.
All the principals care about is how they look on paper, not about the students. I love teaching and the only reason I am a teacher is because I love the children and it is my calling. Working for this district has turned me off on teaching. There are other countries close by Berkeley, work there not at Berkeley.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I enjoy the students, feel that the district is run well and feel that I get the support I need to do the job.

Teacher (Current Employee)
Martinsburg, WV

I have been working at Berkeley County School District

ProsThe district is small with only 4 highschools so consistency across the district is good. Teachers are very professional and have a real caring for their students and a desire to want them to succeed. Communication between various departments is also good - guidance supports the teachers and the administration provides for good working relationships between all parties.

ConsFinances are somewhat limited nad technology is not evenly distributed among the departments but I suspect this is a problem in most schools.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to listen to the teachers in the classroom.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
