    I worked at The School District of Escambia County full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary is comparable to the private sector since it's only a 10 month contract.

    Cons

    Little support from Administrators. Plan on working late every day or from home. I taught high school so plan on teaching numerous subjects even out of field. I really hated having text books that were completely online.

    Advice to Management

    Become proactive to retain teachers vs cold shoulders

    I worked at The School District of Escambia County full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really liked working with the teachers and fellow techs. Everyone was very nice.

    Cons

    Too "clickish" I was told I wouldn't get the permanent because I was a family man and I wasn't a good "fit" because I didn't care about sports and hunting, so i wasn't to become a member of their "good ole' boys" club. I was complimented on my very high skill level which I thought was the most important part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up! Judge employees on their abilities, not whether they align to your way of life or not.

    I have been working at The School District of Escambia County (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The kids are obviously the best reason to work for this school district. Departments are usually close with one another throughout the schools.

    Cons

    most of the faculty are negative bc they are so overworked and so underpaid! The superintendent does NOT care about the teachers and what we have to go through on a day to day basis. The administration is more concerned about pleasing downtown at the district than they are with ensuring a teacher's well-being. I can't remember the last time we got a raise. Our union is a JOKE and anyone who contributes to the union dues are simply paying for the union reps' salaries. They do nothing for teachers....NOTHING!!! The FCAT is shoved down the students' throats bc all the district cares about is teaching to the test. Political political political! Did I mentioned our benefits??? We had our dental taken away and about two years ago our free employee health benefits were also taken away. It really pays to be a teacher in Escambia county I tell you!! Unfortunately, many good teachers continue to leave and the only ones who suffer are the kids.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the well being of the children for once and start investing money in the teacher benefits and teacher salaries. Get a clue!


  9. Love teaching, faculty.

    I have been working at The School District of Escambia County full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The students are amazing. They come in and go to work. At my school we do not have to worry about pep rallies! The faculty is 99% friendly--lunch is the highlight of my day. Everyone lifts everyone else up. Sometimes we talk so much we forget to eat! When I have an idea--they say--you get it together and we'll make it happen.

    Cons

    Would like to have running water and more students. Computers do not handle some of the programs I would like to have on there. Professional development plan waste of time.. Just grade us on student output.

    Advice to Management

    Insure correct content, high rigor balanced with a warm heart.
