    Current Employee - Middle School English Teacher to At-risk Students in Newnan, GA

    I have been working at Coweta County School System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy meeting and reaching each at their present educational level in order to ensure that my students will not be left behind.

    Cons

    The limited time period that I spend with my students. Many of my students need additional help.

    Advice to Management

    A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Knowledge is power.

    I have been working at Coweta County School System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great System. Takes care of employees, especially those on the lower end of the salary scale. Great Benefits, were better before Obamacare but still very good. Added furlough days back to teacher contracts. Covered the increase in health costs for classified employees even though they were not required to.

    Cons

    It can be more about who you know sometimes when attaining promotions, but all systems have that.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities to non-coaching candidates please.

    I have been working at Coweta County School System full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
