    I have been working at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with students, seeing growth over time, colleagues

    Cons

    New evaluation system, strenous workload without compensation.
    I have worked for CMS for over 5 years, but the extended school day, with less classroom assistants is a recipe for overworked and underpayed teacher. Not to mention the amount of documentation that you must have for the new evaluation system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give quality teacher's a reason to stay.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
