Not your average teaching gig

Teacher (Current Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK

I have been working at Oklahoma City Public Schools full-time for more than 5 years

ProsStudents in OKCPS need the best of the best; working for this district is rewarding on a daily basis because of the amazing children we serve.

ConsIt's a hard era to be a teacher; No Child Left Behind and state laws are making it for teachers across Oklahoma to do their jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe encouraging to teachers, and minimize paperwork as much as possible.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Overall a good starting job

Teacher (Former Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK

I worked at Oklahoma City Public Schools full-time for more than a year

ProsThe best reasons to work for OKCPS is the great co workers. We were all in the same struggle together.

ConsThe salary was not impressive. There is room for improvement in the curriculum structure. There needs to be more resources for schools in high poverty areas. There is a severe lack of technology.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep in mind that most of the teachers are really teaching because they love teaching. Respect, acknowledge, and reward that!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Okay if you like union jobs...

Language Arts Teacher (Current Employee)
Oklahoma City, OK

I have been working at Oklahoma City Public Schools full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat kids and a few good colleagues. The younger staff members are great to work with, it is the older ones who will get in the way and bog down the system.

ConsDealing with unionized labor in a professional environment is a joke. Most of the Administrators are nice but incompetent as well, case-in-point Douglass High School's recent fiasco.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
