There is a frat bro-mance sort of culture that discourages genuine academic research or professional skill development.

    Because there are no regular substitute teachers or temp employees, it is very difficult to take off personal days.

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.

    It's a teaching job,so as with any job teaching, flexibility is naturally limited.

    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.
  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve childcare amenities for non-native teachers.

  • Recommend to Women?

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

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

Democracy Prep

Teacher

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.

San Juan Unified School District

Teacher, High School

January 1970

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.
