Pros

The teachers are great! Front office staff is very helpful. The maintenance crew is awesome! Time off, for the most part, is great!

Cons

Everything! Administration - if they are going to play favorites, they should not make it so obvious. If they are going to criticize you for something you have (or haven't) done, they need to make sure that they have not done the same thing. If they are going to have an open door policy, it needs to be open to ALL and not just a select few. If you ask for help with behavior problems, admin should not come in to your room and ask "what have you done to provoke this behavior?" or "why can't you control your students?" And, if they do remove the child from the room, don't bring them to the office and reward them with games, treats or your ipad! When a parent calls because their child received a consequence, don't make the teachers feel as if they need to defend themselves.
Supplies - especially paper....if you really need it and your parents don't donate it, you need to buy it. Text/workbooks are few and far between.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We are asked to fill out both mid year and end of the year surveys. Share them with the staff and then ask what can be done to make things better. And then, listen to your employees. You have such a great group of talented professionals. When there is a turnover of about 30%, there has to be a reason for this. Open your eyes (and your ears) and take a look around. Instead of micromanaging and putting the emphasis on the "mega binder"and a minute-by-minute agenda, ask the teachers what you can do to assist them.
