    Pros

    My job allows me to give to students. I am one of the people that truely cares about them!
     I am able to give hope, where there was none. I am able to help students realize that they are smart and that they do count. Teaching self esteem and positivity is what can make a student try
    and know that if they do not give up, there is nothing that they are not capabale of doing!

    Teaching Rocks!

    Cons

    There are no cons to being a teacher, regardless of the district!

    Advice to Management

    My leader at my school is wonderful!

  2. Helpful (1)

    Pros

    If you care about students from low-income, high risk areas, you can make a big difference in DPS.

    Cons

    Miscommunication, non tenured teachers have no rights, lack of funding, lack of organization within the district, poor planning, punitive measures

    Advice to Management

    Please, stop hiring so many teacher effectiveness coaches and middle level administrators and give teachers more autonomy and respect. Also put less money into assessment and more into supplies and materials, please.
