Worked as a Club Leader in Training, good but stressfull

Club Leader In Training (Former Employee)
Chandler, AZ

I worked at Kyrene School District part-time for less than a year

ProsWorking with kids is one of the best things anyone can do. It creates an awesome connection, brings out the best in you, and gives you an opportunity to help kids who need it

ConsWorking with so many kids is really, really stressful. As great as kids can be, managing just one can be hard enough, let alone 20 or 30 at a time. Furthermore, management can be hard to work with sometimes.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake more advice from staff and try to hire more CLs so that they don't become overwhelmed.

Good job day to day, Supervisors make it not a good job

Program Coordinator/Club Leader (Former Employee)
Tempe, AZ

I worked at Kyrene School District full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWorking with kids everyday is not a problem. It all depends who your boss is but you mostly make the most of your job with the work you put into it

ConsUpper Managements focus isn't on the kids as much as it is on the parents. I get that parents are the ones paying for the program but ultimately they will pay what they need to pay as long as the clients (kids) are having a good time. Upper management needs to worry about the parents and let the ones who deal with the kids daily do what they need to do to ensure the kids are having a safe and fun time

Cadillac School District on a Yugo Budget.

Teacher (Former Employee)

I worked at Kyrene School District

ProsGreat technology resources. Good continuing education opportunities for teachers.

ConsToo much emphasis on maintaining the 'Kyrene Image' of being the best district in AZ. Reality is sometimes ignored.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay focussed on what the real life is like in the trenches.

Excellent district to teach for!

Primary Teacher (K-3) (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I have been working at Kyrene School District

ProsExcellent Teachers, they are all top-notch educators...you can learn a lot working here. Lots of parent involvement as well.
Their use of career ladder is a great incentive for teachers to make more money.
Low class sizes (ratio for k-3 was 20 to 1)
Overall, decent pay for teachers...and, they like teachers to move around between buildings...good for building your career and reputation

ConsNot many...you do need to work harder and be more involved than at other districts (with commitees)
Large district...hard to feel more than a number.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvolve teachers more when it comes to major decisions affecting the entire district (financially)
Create more financial incentives for teachers to advance academically in their field (offer stipends for classes)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
