    I have been working at Tooele County School District (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work at an elementary school in Tooele as the librarian, and I love my job. The students and teachers at my school are great, I love literacy and books and overall I love my job.

    Cons

    Very low pay. I may make $15/hour (in my 6th year), but contracted for only 35 hours/week for only the weeks that school is in session, it comes out to around $20,000/year, which is not much for full-time work. I run 1/2 hour sessions with each class every week, which means I work as a teacher, a librarian, and I run 2-3 book fairs/year, which is customer service and retail work. It's great, but we are not compensated well.

    Advice to Management

    Consider defining the role of elementary librarians better. Every school has different requirements for their librarians. Some have outside duties, others don't. Some have teaching responsibilities, others just run the library as a library.

    I have been working at Tooele County School District full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The students are fantastic, and the majority of parents will help if asked.

    Cons

    The district is so far removed from their employees that I was told by a district employee that my opinion counted for absolutely nothing, and that i should stop asking questions.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees, and practice a little transparency.

    I worked at Tooele County School District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great administration and faculty. Newer schools with AC and clean, bright classrooms. Most of the schools are easy to commute to from Tooele and from Salt Lake. Kids are nice. Parents are not very involved.

    Cons

    Tooele School District is one of the lowest paid districts with benefits, salary and yearly raises. The district office is very out of touch with the local schools. It's time for them to really push for a tax raise for the area's education. And the state of Utah and education can be tough with merit pay, paperwork, teacher tests and teacher requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Less administrative work for teachers. More pay in order to compete with other districts and other states.

    I worked at Tooele County School District (More than a year)

    Pros

    Being a substitute Teacher was great for the flexibility of working when I wanted to. The Aesop system is great and offers Substitutes the opportunity to see their ratings from Teachers, which is a really useful tool to know how well the classroom was run in the teacher's opinion.

    Cons

    Be sure to print off your Aesop rating list periodically because it will not be there after you are no longer employed. If you're not getting calls it's because you need to be calling in every day, also teachers have their favorites so you got to find ways to get them to be impressed by you.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice to the management. Everything is great. The Supervisor is wonderful to work for. I really like her tips on how to get calls that she posted on the website.
