Reviews

  • Works for me! Teacher, Elementary School

    2022-04-23 01:50:36.09

    Remote, excellent coworkers, understanding administrators, and understanding of having a family.

    Large caseload, phone calls to students are quota based. Sometimes unrealistic with all of the daily necessary normal teacher responsibilities.
