Recommends
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Memphis City Schools part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Teachers will recommend you to other teachers needing a sub. Multiple day assignments. Pretty good pay.

Cons

substitutes are considered part time, no benefits. Discipline is very restricted. Do not feel Administration take action in timely manner.

Advice to Management

After a certain number of infractions by any given student corrective action should be taken. Give substitutes half of full time employees benefits.

    Pros

    Steady work. Good pay and benefits. Work / life balance that is skewed toward life (although in some cases that's a con). And most important - the opportunity to contribute toward the education and development of future generations.

    Cons

    Heavy on the red tape and politics. Lots of people watching the clock, taking up space / resource, and complaining - and not contributing to improving the situation. Even those who want to see things change for the better are - in many cases - unable to get traction to make a start...

    Advice to Management

    Continue finding (both inside and outside) rsources who have the attitude and appitude for change and improvement and providing the support and leadership they need to move things forward. Push underperforming resoures to step up and do better (and procide the coaching, mentoring and personal development to enable them to) and, if they do not. move them in to more appropriate positions for their skill set and / or replace them.
