Why our team loves working here

“Tierra Encantada is amazing! The workforce there is so diverse and the leadership team really cares! They are focused on helping you improve in your job and career and focus on internal growth and promotion! Many of the center directors and HQ staff started as a teacher! They also have professional development like an internal program to achieve your CDA. They also offer great benefits! ”

“First company I have worked at that I actually believe cares about diversity (vs just says so). I like that it is warm and laid back. I’ve worked places where it was cold and almost clinical where you didn’t know anything about the people working around you. Here is the opposite of that. The company lets you do yours ideas to improve things. I’m a high performer and I like being surrounded by colleagues that are similar so it feels like we are all in it together making things happen.”

“I came with a foreign degree that is wasn’t accredited in the United States, I started working in a summer camp that gave me some experience to apply as a teacher aide in Tierra Encantada, and in less than four months I finished the CDA that Tierra offers me without any cost, and the same time Tierra Encantada helps me to revalidate my university degree and offers me a new position related with my career if you are a person that takes great opportunities this is the place for you! A place to encourage you to grow with training good management and believes in you. I cannot be more grateful for the job that challenges me every day to learn more.”

“I like working for TE because there is a lot of support within the company. I am very grateful to the CEO for always thinking about the workers and in a way knowing how to reward them for their hard work. The company gives the opportunity to always grow if you wish. You can turn to many people if you have any questions such as HR, Enrollment, Purchasing, Projects, Brand Quality, directors, assistants, curriculum and so on. It is a great company and I feel lucky to work for TE.”
