I have been working at Norfolk Public Schools full-time (More than 3 years)
Decent pay. Challenging work place. Lots of time off. You get some paper every month. They pay on time. We get food for free sometimes.
Sorry.. feeling a bit disgruntled at the moment. I'm sure there are those motivated individuals who can find a way to work within a school which has been failing as miserably as this one has for some time now; I'm just not one of them. Expect extreme pressure to fulfill useless tasks for management (I know this is vague and applies to half of the jobs out there) which don't at all help our students succeed.
Advice to Management
Fight the VDOE as much as possible. Their one-size-fits-all solutions for why we are failing grossly neglect what is best for our students. We need to carve our own way out of the beautiful mess that is Booker T..
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Norfolk Public Schools (Norfolk, VA).
I received a phone call from the director of Human Resources. I was told that I was referred to them by an employee. They asked if I had my teaching certification. After indicating that I did have a certification, they asked if I would be interested in filling out paperwork for a position. Did not have an interview. Was essentially hired over the phone.
