wonderful kids

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I love the children I work with and the coworkers are nice and friendly. A good atmosphere with receptive administration and nice benefits but not very good pay.

Meaningful work, but demanding

The kids for the most part are great, but there is always a couple that make it hard on the other students to learn and the instructor to teach. Very little support from admin on working with these kids. They always fall back on us and send them back to class. Instructors need to adjust.

Pros

Low teach/kid ratio, get to teach with autonomy

Cons

low pay, benifits

Fun coworkers, not so fun director(s)

Before the newest director, I loved my job. Under the newest director, the management went to trash. Lack of ambition. Lazy, and preoccupied with her life. The idea behind co-directors was to hold each other accountable, but instead they found the quickest ways to cut corners and not give the staff the full support they needed.

Pros

wonderful parents and staff appreciation days

Cons

Lack of ambition and motivation in management

Summit School

I had never worked at a private school before so this was completely new to me. I didn't realize how teachers could conspire to hurt other teachers they didn't like. I have never known teachers like that. The students were fantastic and I enjoyed working with them. The administration was not supportive at all. I know now that I was meant to teach in the public schools.

Pros

Great students, some wonderful parents

Cons

Lack of support from other teachers and administration

Learning Experience

A typical day would start of as stocking up, making sure the store was clean. The work space was small but we got everything done within our work space. Everyone was friendly and great people. Even though some of my co-workers would be difficult to work with.

Pros

Flexible Hours with School

Cons

poor teamwork

Fun workplace with a lot of collaborative thinking. Some days are more stressful than others but all in all it is a great place to work. You get to work with a variety of people and students on a daily basis to help better your craft of teaching.

Pros

Free Breakfast and Lunch

Cons

Stressful environment at times

Good working place with children with developmental disabilities

The school environment is adapted to meet the special needs of the students The staff is friendly and approachable Typical day at work: Assist the teacher in teaching, supervise the students during their break times, intervene when students' behavior issues occur, modify students' schoolwork in order for them to have a higher chance to succeed and animate activities for students. The most challenging part of this job is that it is mostly hands-on so you always have to be alert and on the move.

Great place to be a student and great place to work

I worked at Summit school over 10 yrs ago. When I was in a transition period in my life I worked as a part time computer graphics teacher for students, as well as a math tutor. It was a very enriching experience. I found all of my coworkers to be kind and enjoyable to work with.

Creación de Escuela

Historically great school environment

For most of my years at Summit, a typical day working with children was interesting and satisfying. The last two years there under the most recent manager, it became much more stressful. I learned through the 20+ years there how to negotiate with and lead teachers, parents and children as a counselor in a school. For most years the management was excellent, very supportive of workers and professional growth, encouraging teacher autonomy, health and well-being for the benefit of children. The school ethos was extremely positive, of the highest quality. As management changed, it became very difficult to work in the anxious environment that evolved under the new leadership style. However, the treasured relationships with children, parents and teachers remain forever.

Pros

Long history of loving school environment

Cons

Difficult management change
