Most of your coworkers will be women, but they do not go "above and beyond" for anyone. There is no daycare of any kind in the area.

    Paternity leave is non-existent. Maternity leave is the standard 12 weeks unpaid FMLA. If you've earned enough paid leave, you may use that to continue receiving paychecks.

    It's a teaching job,so as with any job teaching, flexibility is naturally limited.
  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. It's a good place for beginning teachers, but there are no amenities in the area.

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve childcare amenities for non-native teachers.

Don't do it- they don't have maternity leave, and they don't pay for birth control.

This employer does promote professional growth, but at a cost of work-life balance. In order to be successful at this job, you need to be willing to dedicate you entire life to it.

    Maybe. You learn a lot at this job and grow quickly as an educator. The job itself is very unsustainable with long hours and many expectations outside the classroom.

The teacher's union is strong, so the pay in SJUSD is better compared to the cost of living than in other districts. However, men still dominate leadership positions and it is only teacher's pay.

There is no such thing as paid maternity leave in education. You MUST either save up your days off that are provided or invest in short-term disability insurance.

As with any school district, there is a lot of built in support for women who are or intend to become pregnant. However, better healthcare and maternity leave come at a cost. The pay is low, and depending on when the pregnancy occurs, it's possible that it may be difficult to return to work after you have a child.
