    Good salary. There are many people in Baton Rouge that are very supportive of the schools. Many wonderful coworkers. Staff at my school are cohesive.

    I worked at East Baton Rouge Parish School System part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The system is fairly easy to orient to, and the schedule is as flexible as you need it to be. When teachers leave adequate lesson information, the process is very smooth, and painless. Starting out, I tried many different schools and established a rapport with the administration so that once I discovered which schools I'd like to frequent, I was already on their priority list. Get to know the teachers and you'll always have the best support system when you arrive to work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, many teachers will not leave great instruction. With the exception to those who request subs due to sudden emergencies, there are teachers who leave vague instructions and, in some cases, no instruction at all.

    Also, due to the fear of requirements by the ACA, EBR restricted substitute hours to 29/wk to avoid offering health insurance. I'm not sure if that was even necessary since many subs do not work the available 40 each week anyway, but this pay cut was not necessary, in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Re-consider the behavioral management procedures to accommodate substitutes teachers also, and be aware of the classrooms that have substitutes - those classes will pro

    Pros

    I love working with students and sharing the love of reading, writing, and expressing ideas.

    Cons

    The focus is more on the data than the students. There is no concern for their well-being when they are faced with real life issues. They want teachers to be miracle workers without being involved with them on any personal level.

    Advice to Management

    The old way actually works - try it!! Take out all of the politics and just allow us to TEACH!!!
