      Business Outlook


      - At the time, I very appreciated the school leadership. Principal, Deans, Ops Director and teachers. - They were flexible and they were good in listening people.


      - At times everything seem urgent. Therefore, sometimes the work and life balance didn't feel healthy. However, leadership wanted to work on that.

        Business Outlook


        The organization is unafraid to discuss and tackle challenging topics like race and equity within its staff and leadership. Many organizations include equity in their mission and vision but don't truly dig into the work that needs to be done with their staff to deliver quality education to their students. Hiawatha is trying to do that work. The staff is fiercely committed to the community. Hiawatha has some of the best teachers that are eager to roll up their sleeves, do the work, and figure out how to meet the needs of all their students.


        High turnover in leadership has made the job of new leaders and teachers very challenging. Many great ideas have circulated throughout Hiawatha, but there isn't a great information-sharing system, so processes and systems live and die with specific leaders.

      Senior Manager

      I am hopeful I’ll get an offer soon. I have an upcoming 10-day trip in 2 months and am wondering when is the right time to bring it up/negotiate time off: When they send me the offer? If yes, do I tell HR or try to reach out to the manager? When I start the job? A few days after I start?
