    I worked at EAST BRUNSWICK TOWNSHIP BOARD OF EDUCATION full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They pay better than most surrounding districts. (They better pay more because of all the additional stress put on the teachers here).

    Cons

    Administration is suffocating.

    Teachers are worn from impossible expectations.

    Parents are overly involved and blames the teacher for their child's shortcomings. Admin was no help.

    Some teachers will bring down a colleague just to come up on top.

    There was no presence of administration throughout the building. Rarely saw the principal in the halls. Had no rapport with the students.

    A lot of two faced individuals working here.

    Staff morale was down the drain. Complaints every day. Lunch period was a downer.

    I felt like I had to fend for myself.

    The salary should be in the $100,000 to compensate for everything these teachers go through. It's insane.

    If you want to be 100% engulfed in your work and stress over your job 24/7 then EB is the place for you. You definitely won't have time to live a life separate from work.

    Advice to Management

    Better train administration so they are nurturing towards all teachers, new and old. Invest in the teachers' future rather than fire and hire new ones. Side with the teachers and stop worrying about what the parents and students will say if you back up your hard working teachers.

    Pros

    Some of the staff was nice and friendly. For me, it was close to home and a short commute.

    Cons

    Give jobs to people they know, not necessarily to the people who were most qualified for the job. Does not care about seniority and will lay off employees who have worked there for 15 years without an explanation.

    Pros

    School climate can be pleasant depending on which school you work at.

    Cons

    There is very little respect from the administrators for an Instructional Assistant. Random Assistants are given the RIF letters each year, just so they can make their budgets. Most are hired back in August, which leads to a several month period of stress, from late April when they start the layoffs, until late August when they call you to ask you back. The majority of elementary school Instructional Assists are part time, because the district does not want to spend the money on benefits. This causes the special needs population that we work with to have a lack of continuity on a daily basis. They also prefer to hire certified teachers who are unable to find employment as teachers and will consider this their "foot in the door." The main problem with this is that very often they leave when a job becomes available in another school district. In my school, some of the special needs students have as many as 5 different instructional Assistants in a single year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off this particular group of employees. It is stressful and frustrating to those of us that have been with the district for many years. Consider hiring us in full time positions.
