- 4.0Feb 26, 2020ESL TeacherFormer Employee, more than 3 yearsLafayette, LA
The organizational structure was good.
There aren't many professional development opportunities.
- 4.0Mar 18, 2019TeacherCurrent Employee, more than 10 yearsLafayette, LA
Better salary than most parishes (counties) in Louisiana. Several opportunities for professional development. I teach in the French Immersion program. Students in the French Immersion program tend to be average to above average students. Several schools of choice.
Salary not competitive with most other states in the US. Very rigid curriculum. Doesn't allow for flexibility or creativity.

Lots of professional development opportunities.
Sometimes the administration in the district can be too political.
- 4.0Jun 1, 2015Elementary TeacherCurrent Employee, less than 1 yearLafayette, LA
Great staff, decent pay, good benefits, and lots of professional development opportunities.
New common core approach to writing and implementing curriculum may be reason for caution for some.
