    Pros

    Great culture about teaching to the whole child...not just the content. Lots of autonomy in the classroom. Many opportunities to further one's education and development.

    Cons

    Tremendous workload expected of you to take care of things that are not only way outside the job description but also way outside any reasonable person's 8-hr day.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality over quantity and stop demanding that so many little things be tended to and rather focus your staff on the top three priorities necessary to get the job done.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Denver Public Schools.

    Interview

    The interview had several parts, including a data section, an evaluation section, and a q and a. The process is great for people who don't ponder what to say before speaking, but not at all great for people who do.
