Working at the Prairie City School is a breath of fresh air. The students are courteous and the administration treats us like professionals. I have not worked in a school with so much school spirit in the 35 years that I have been teaching. From preschool to high school students proudly wear the school colors. The innovative approach that the school takes to make sure all students are acknowledged is admirable. In the elementary, there is a vending machine for books that students can purchase with coins awarded by teachers. In the high school, there are classes and experiences for students that much larger schools don’t even provide. Students thrive in FFA, they experiment with drones and technology and the Seniors all do projects that help them grow as human beings. I think the school culture is the best that I have ever worked in.

I love to work for Prairie City School District because I feel supported and valued by the administration. I appreciate that the administration understands the importance of work-life balance and prioritizes the needs of our families. This creates a positive work environment where teachers can thrive and focus on their students' success.
