The pension scheme was good and the annual leave was good with times when the University is 'shut' eg over Christmas in addition to the annual leave allowance. Good facilities on site
Good holidays, especially with closures at Christmas and Easter
Good flexible benefits scheme for healthcare, childcare and travel etc
Part-time staff get a pro rata holiday allowance, so it's a fair amount. The enrolment for flexible benefits is only once a year or at a qualifying life event, but there are a wide range from health account savings to shopping vouchers to dental insurance. There is also a good pension with employer match (the amount depends on your salary).

This may sound crazy, but does anyone else not love summer break? I enjoy my work. It gives me purpose. Sure, we plan and do things over summer, but I find the constant pressure of finding constructive things to do day to day increases my anxiety. Give me two weeks like winter break and let’s get back to it 🤷♂️

Vaccinated teachers: are any of you still wearing masks while teaching? Is it mandated or are you choosing to do so? Masks aren’t mandated in my school district, and even though I’m fully vaxxed, I’m weighing the costs and benefits of wearing a mask in class. Could use some thoughts and opinions.

Ok, so my principal does not allow worksheets or art projects at all unless it’s a holiday or indoor recess. She wants students writing in composition notebooks. How can I teach my 1st Grade Special Education (cognitive delays so they are on a preschool/kindergarten level) their alphabet and numbers 1-20 with no worksheets or art projects. New to this grade too. Thanks in advance!!

Summer Travel: In the craziness of the school year I didn't get/make the time to plan my summer out, so I'm doing it now. I realize it's late, & I don't normally wait so long, but I am in desperate need of a vacation. If I were to visit your state/county this summer, what kinds of things should I do? What COVID restrictions should I expect? Is it worth spending the money/planning to come right now? **NOTE: Yes, I'm researching online as well, but would like insights from residents. Thanks!

Flexible working around studies, ambassador scheme good for development but cliquey
Flexible benefits scheme with a range of benefits including bus passes, car parking passes, discounted gym membership. Overall lots of good benefits
the company had a number of benefits but depending on the length of service. it was a 6 month wait to be entitled to the basic benefits
