Former Employee - Teacher in Culver City, CA

Pros

It is a good opportunity for those looking for a career in teaching.

Cons

Poor business ethics such as hiring and management communication.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When hiring someone find out if they are truly fit for the position. Do not hire them and 2 months later decide they are not competent in the position they are improving upon.

    Pros

    Being given the opportunity to teach standards based material that is focused on fun. Classroom instruction is run formally, but you also get the chance to play and enjoy lots of much needed recreation with the kids. This job provides great experience if you are working towards becoming a certified teacher. The satisfaction you get from this job will come solely from the relationships you build with the children and families.

    Cons

    This is not a job to keep long term. No possibility of a raise or increased hours. You are expected to write curriculum that often requires time outside of the work day; they say that you need to do curriculum on site but then don't provide the time to do it. Sites are often understaffed, causing stress and strain on the available staff. They hire mostly high school graduates / college students and it shows. Much of the staff lack common sense and/or simply don't care enough about the job, leaving most the work to those who do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees that are responsible and trustworthy with raises or bring back the head teacher position.
