    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Minneapolis Schools part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's very interesting working with students in the various neighborhoods. You will have fun and rewarding days. Very flexible, work only the days you want, there are many different schools and almost always shifts available somewhere.

    Cons

    Some students can be challenging, and occasionally it can be hard work, as a substitute, to keep control of the classroom. You learn not to take the rough days too personally.

  2. "Urban Education is Tough, but They're Making an Effort"

    Current Freelancer - Substitute Teacher in Minneapolis, MN

    I have been working at Minneapolis Schools for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Enthusiastic teachers that care about the students - Bright students - Good pay for substitute teachers - Schools are generally supportive of substitute teachers

    Cons

    - Depending on the school and the day, things were sometimes hectic - Some schools are tough to teach in

    Advice to Management

    - Do everything you can to support your teachers and your students - Standardized tests take up way too much time. The amount of time students spend testing may not be that much, but much more learning time is lost than just that amount

  3. "Good for subs."

    Former Contractor - Substitute Teacher 

    I worked at Minneapolis Schools

    Pros

    Good school system to work in for substitute teachers. Opportunities to connect with schools and get called back as a preferred sub if you do well and find a good fit with a specific class.

    Cons

    Mpls schools can have some classroom management challenges, especially for a sub, but if you come in prepared it usually works out just fine. Incomplete sub plans are always a possibility.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure classes are prepared to treat subs with respect and to expect to get work done, not just watch videos. Recognize good subs and make an effort to build a relationship with them. It's best for you, your school, and your employees.
