    I have been working at Putnam City School District I-001, Oklahoma County full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Teaching children not only curriculum but being a role model, the teachers who go above and beyond, the overworked secretaries that will help you with anything even though it is not in their job description, all of the new implementations of special education classes and needs. One of the most rewarding (not by money) jobs you will find.

    Cons

    The teachers who don't care and bring others down. Discipline is lacking. The politics are infuriating (make sure you know someone who knows someone and make sure they are someone of authority).

    Pros

    We have offices in special services building. This gives us easy access to the special services office staff.

    Cons

    Having offices not at school sites means we have travel time between buildings. It's harder to build relationships with school staff.

    Advice to Management

    Support more opportunities for professional development. Increase special services staff to recommended levels.

    Pros

    If you love kids, they are what keeps you coming. Leaving them was the hardest part

    Cons

    I felt outta place, it felt like the upper authority dislikes the opposite race as well as how different children were treated and disciplined

    Advice to Management

    Upper management has their nose to high

    Pros

    The pay is good, and the school really takes care of you.

    Cons

    The students are difficult. I've taught at other schools and these are by far the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Putnam City School District I-001, Oklahoma County full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    All Federal Holidays off. 2wks paid vacation, 2 weeks sick leave, 3 Personal Days.

    Cons

    Non experienced employees start at $26000, with 5 years experience start at $32000. Due to my circumstance coming in I was able to start higher, but I stayed at the same salary, despite a great peer review every year, and accolades for making impossible projects come in on time, six years later. No cost of living increase, no OT, no Bonuses. No paid training given to new employees, no paid training given to long term employees. Many times I bought my own supplies and software to get my job done, as many times I was told there was no money for it, even though it was beneficial to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    none.
