Wichita, KS

I have been working at Wichita Public Schools part-time for more than 3 years

ProsI enjoy coordinating volunteers. Everyday is a new challenge. Also I receive the same days off as my children.

ConsIt is a part time job with no benefits. In order to do the job to my fullest I find myself working more than my paid hours by taking home work.

High School Teacher (Current Employee)
Wichita, KS

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

ProsTons of adacemic freedom, mostly because high school building admin have no clue what goes on in a classroom- they don't set foot in them. AMAZING health benefits- zero $ premium for non-tobacco users who complete health screenings like well-woman appointments or dental cleanings. Parents rarely in your face.

ConsProblem students are simply shuffled from school to school instead of being expelled from the district (althought explusions do occassionally occur after multiple offenses). This results in high mobility of students- not unusual to get a new student in May who was kicked out of another school for punching a staff member. Almost no funding. Technology access is a joke unless you are in the math department.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the hands-off approach- terrible teachers get to keep their jobs while great teachers get to try new ideas without fear of the inquisition! Get rid of the violent offenders and keep that rockin benefits program.
