Teacher at Anchorage School District

Teacher (Former Employee) Anchorage, AK

ProsWork with a dynamic, ethnically diverse student population. Many schools have newer media technology such as white boards or Smart Boards and laptop carts for use in the classroom. Some schools have wireless internet access. Some school buildings have been recently remodeled.

ConsIn many schools, teachers are not treated professionally. Teachers frequently have an unrealistic workload (multiple preps, large class sizes, many IEP meetings, "traveling" to multiple classrooms, etc.). This short-changes the students as much as it does teachers. Inadequate planning on the part of school administration or the District leads to disruptive last-minute changes in teaching assignments or curriculum.

Advice to Senior ManagementTeachers are content-specific experts; assign courses according to that expertise. Students will benefit from this action, especially at the high school level. In order for teachers to be most effective with students, treat them with kindness and respect rather than contempt or suspicion.
