  1.  

    Great Experience with some special students

    Former Employee - TEACHERS ASSISTANT  in  Maryland Heights, MO
    Former Employee - TEACHERS ASSISTANT in Maryland Heights, MO

    I worked at Special School District full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I really loved working with the students with special needs, watching them succeed in their life goals was amazing experience.

    Cons

    There was a lack of communications between staff and Human Resource Office. Also I notice a lack of respect towards Teacher Assistant position in general plus low wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communications, respect all Special School District staff including Teacher Assistants and consider a salary for staff. Fast food workers often earn more than than Teacher Assistants.

  2.  

    There is no room for professional growth.

    I have been working at Special School District

    Pros

    small family like setting; receive valuable, life experience; good hours, allows plenty of family time; able to take off frequently

    Cons

    it is a year round facility - no summers off; also, employees typically only get off for the actual holiday, not surrounding days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more open-minded to new comer opinions; become more one on one with the employees by having on campus tours

    Cons

    amount of paperwork, time available to complete paperwork during the work day, changes in process midyear which makes it hard to implement
