    I worked at Los Angeles USD full-time (more than an year)


    Teachers I worked with loved teaching children and working collaboratively. Good benefits. Lovely families and students with moderate level of participation.


    Corrupt, culture of fear. Job security trumps student welfare. Union is crippling. Worst for special needs students and teachers. Special Ed programs are not adequately supported ; safe environment and basic classroom supplies are low priority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just start over from scratch. It's too big and problems are too pervasive to fix. Union has grown too strong and is now a detriment and divisive element.

    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Los Angeles USD.

    Interview Details

    I had one interview for an elementary school teaching position. I was asked several questions, from the standard "Why do you want to work here?" to "Delve into your experience working with children." I am bilingual (Spanish), and the area where the school was located had a majority of Latino students, so that came in handy when explaining my ability to communicate with Spanish-speaking parents if necessary.

    Interview Questions
    • Why did you apply to teach at this school and not X school in another district?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was straight out of undergrad so there was no negotiation. My salary was set.
