    Good salary for the area, great students, colleagues were fun and interesting

    Administration was sometimes not on-the-ball. County-level administration had mostly lost touch with classroom-level education

    Spend more time in classrooms simply observing.

    I worked at Albemarle County Schools part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    They are convient to most, give hearty welcomes, wiling to lend a helping hand, opened to suggestions and willing to try new projects.

    Cons

    All students were not treated fairly, some were purposely ignored on a daily basis, and some were set up to fail even if it was their senior year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all students the same. Make sure all students are included in their class work. Do not set a student up to fail at anytime.

    Former Employee - Teacher in Charlottesville, VA

    I worked at Albemarle County Schools

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits; summer, winter and spring breaks; opportunities for professional development; good schools / good state grades; beautiful scenery

    Cons

    Very little teacher support; some schools very "clique-ish"; poor administration in some schools; not up front with new personnel; lack of communication between schools, departments, school board, and others

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps administration should receive observations at least 3 times a year- and take information from all teachers as to problems that need to be fixed; be sure that new hires are aware of ALL county rules, policies, procedures, etc (specifically the "one year hire" policy); the adminstration evaluation that teachers are asked to participate in doesn't seem to do any good - the suggestions and comments were never looked into, and no changes were made.
