    The job, curriculum, and your professionalism are what you make of them

    I worked at Landon School

    Pros

    flexible schedule, freedom to design own courses, freedom to start any initiative you want, can apply for summer research grants, faculty housing option (free or reduced) are good options. I had a great peer support group; most colleagues were open and positive

    Cons

    The lack of structure can be overwhelming at times. As a new teacher, it is good to be in control of your curriculum, class, and schedule (to a large extent), but at times you might feel like you are overextended and others are coasting. The structure of the Upper School also encourages a 'just enough' attitude, though the relationships with colleagues and students are top notch. Must coach a sport and these 'loads' are not flexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Equal distribution of work--don't make all the young teachers teach, coach, run clubs, etc. etc. and others just teach.
