There were numerous opportunities to help others.
There was an opportunity to be creative and connect with others.

Cons

The work environment was inconsistent, with competing priorities from many different factions.

Communication could be improved on many levels, so that newer employees have a better understanding of how to solve problems within the system. An organizational chart distributed during orientation would go a long way toward this.

    I worked at West Contra Costa USD - Richmond full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The students are diverse, interesting, wonderful people who face seemingly insurmountable obstacles to success. To earn their trust is an honor and a heavy responsibility. The teachers are predominantly tough, scrappy educators who will stop at nothing to help their students.

    Cons

    Working in WCCUSD can be heart-wrenching, with so many dedicated adults working to help their students and the work not always paying off. Furthermore, in the past few years corruption in high levels of the district administration discouraged quality teachers like me who prefer to work with people with integrity. With a new administration in place, I am hopeful this careless management will change.

    Advice to Management

    Take your posts seriously but allow schools the flexibility to act on behalf of their students rather than act to comply with your esoteric requirements. Our teachers and students depend on you to be both driven and flexible.
