“We have a team approach and support one another — from the therapists to the program staff. The relationship we have as colleagues and the way we work together translates into highly individualized care for our students — it’s what’s best for our students and us,” says Julie. “My coworkers have also become lifelong friends. Many of them have worked here longer than me, because this is the kind of place you want to stay.”
In addition to the team mentality and comradery, she says the company also puts a lot of stock in MyPath employees. MyPath is 100% employee owned. After a year of employment with 1,000 hours of work, employees begin to receive company funded MyPath stock shares. After continued employment, the number of shares employees receive grows. “The monetary and individual investment MyPath makes in us drives us to work harder for the company,” says Julie. “We have more pride in what we’re doing and perform better.”
Growth opportunities also come with employment at MyPath. There are nine MyPath companies with 150 locations throughout Wisconsin and Indiana. Julie says she has seen many special education teachers go on to leadership roles. “With all our companies, employees have a lot of options to explore other options to grow,” she says.
If you are detail oriented, flexible, willing to learn and compassionate — because nearly all these students have a traumatic history — you’ll find that Genesee Lake School is a great opportunity for you.
