Wonderfully diverse work community. Enjoy teaching in a supportive environment. Students and families are committed to getting a good education.

Cons

In the late Spring and early Summer months work conditions are uncomfortably hot and make for a difficult earning environment. Some schools are in need of more updated technology for students.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need more support English Language Learners and their families.

    Pros

    A lot of choices as to types of curriculum varying on schools. Implementation of Common Core State Standards.

    Cons

    Too much testing without full implementation of new curricula.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay with programs longer than a few years in order to see if implementations of new curricula are working. Find a way to include anecdotal data when reviewing students' progress.
