Current Employee - Hard Work and Long Hours But You Do IT for the Students!

I have been working at Aspire Public Schools

Pros

The students, the results, and the intrinsic rewards. Some flexibility in some jobs about dress codes, time off, etc. Teachers get less flexibility.

Cons

Compensation, long days, not as much autonomy as expected. Everything (feedback, PD days, the few compensation dollars) are given to teachers; Corporate staff left out of most of those things.

    Pros

    Great benefits and incredible opportunities to learn. Lots of passionate educators.

    Cons

    I feel they draw on your idealism to squeeze out more work than is fair to ask of one person. I want to help underprivileged students, but not at the expense of my own family. There is so much emphasis on evaluating teachers and bombarding teachers with constant strategies to boost student achievement, that I forgot what made me love teaching in the first place.

    Aspire seems to be anti-textbook, which means even more work for teachers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that teaching should be a sustainable professional for people interested in making a career out of it, not just a two year stint for young TFA-ers who burn out and go to law school.
