    Higher pay than most school systems in the area.

    Administrators who literally threatened teachers' positions if the standardized test scores did not meet their projection.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, parent involvement, opportunities to make real differences in the life of others

    Cons

    Rigid hierarchy in administration oversight and increasing bureaucratic paper work. Recent state and federal mandated legislation in evaluation of employees is a complex matrix in which excellence ratings are so cumbersome many great employees are rated mere.y as proficient. Health benefits severely downgraded pay vs workload comparative to business world substandard. Increasing overemphasis on test scores and yearly growth gains are focused on educators and schools rather than students.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more collegial consensus decision making. Great school and district support for student discipline.

    Pros

    The best reason that I can list would definitely be working with the students. Sure, you have some that really test your patience level, but there are so many more that truly touched my heart and became such a special part of my everyday life.

    Cons

    You see first hand that there are employees that do not care about their job or the students that are with them everyday. Those employees really make the job more difficult and not having higher management not see this is really a disappointment. Some employees are given many chances when they make a mistake and then some are terminated and not given any fair chance at all.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to realize that no one employee should be treated any differently than another.


  11. If you are a single parent this is not the job for you.
