Pros

I had a few very good students.

Cons

CMS just doesn't understand that discipline is their biggest problem. If the system worked on just this one issue, test scores would go way up. They just can't seem to hire principals that know how to turn a school around. I had six in 14 years and they all were ineffective.

Advice to Management

Deal with the poor discipline and hire principals that will support the teachers.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to grow as an educator. Professional Development is available if you want to continue developing as an educator.

    Cons

    Lots of paper work and headaches. The district is huge and there is a lot of micromanaging. Leadership is always changing.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to micromanage as much
