    Good district but ultimately depends on principal and fellow teachers

    I worked at Glendale Elementary School District full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Discovery school is where I worked. Diane Pesch was the principal at that time and she is great.

    Cons

    Lower income area. Less parent involvement and kids constantly moving in and out of district

    Pros

    Great staff members and team members to work with. The district does a really great job integrating common core standards into the curriculum.

    Cons

    Unsustainable work environment, asking too much from teachers. Often the evaluation process was not based on teaching, but was based on personal bias.

    I have been working at Glendale Elementary School District full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best part of Glendale were the teachers. They supported each other like more than any other place i had ever seen. Teachers are committed to the students and education.

    Cons

    The administration both at the school and district level were very unorganized, changing programs and "focuses" more than once a year, as well as having multiple"focuses" each year. There is very little open communication amongst administration and staff and admin tends to micromanage everything.

    It was very interesting to work there. It was like everyone just does whatever. With no follow up. Or follow through.

    Health benefits are great. They use to have a wellness program that was really great.

    Cons

    No Communications, training needs improvement and they need to stop playing favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest and communicate with openness.

    I have been working at Glendale Elementary School District

    Pros

    You get a week off for fall break, a week at Thanksgiving, a two week break for Xmas and a week for Spring Break.

    Cons

    We used to get two for fall and spring. If you are sick, you are required to go to the doctor, even if you are just feeling BLAH. Favoritism is huge. If you do not fit in the inner-circle you will be miserable. You have to be placed in it...you can not work your way in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate non administration positions, like team leaders, mentors and advisors.
