    Former Employee - Dean of Students in Lynwood, CA

    I worked at Lynwood Unified School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a pleasure to teach and mentor the students the 34 years of my employ there and I enjoyed my experience with other employees of the school district.

    Cons

    Because of different backgrounds and cultures, it was necessary to develop and use various techniques and strategies in order to get along with my comrades. Promotions came about on a merit basis and the compensation was quite sufficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The main emphasis is to align oneself with others with the objective being to attain the task at hand while developing good relationships in the workplace. Realizing that there are people with different ideas with best intentions of succeeding in accomplishing goals that may run counter to one's own, different strategies may be necessary to achieve the required result. Compensation should be based on merit.

    Pros

    The students and their families are amazing and care about education.

    Administration at site and at district are obstacle to progress and effective reform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible. Support good teachers. Operate from a place of caring and not fear. Hire more security officers, secretaries and support staff. Recruit good teachers with competitive salaries.
