Ship of fools

Teacher (Special Education) (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

ProsDPS is a great place to get experience in settings that you won't see in other school districts. It is easy to find a job, especially if you are going through an alternative licensure program.

ConsToo many teachers are burned out and retired on the job years ago. Administration has no backbone, and allows behavior that I would have never imagined before working in the schools. Kids move between schools a lot. The Pro-Comp system is a joke, and is gamed just like anything else in education.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou know the difference between right and wrong. Start expecting your teachers to act like professionals. You know what real academic progress looks like. Start expecting your students to grow into successful citizens.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: The school I worked in was high-performing, and the entire staff and administration provided support and encouragement in maintaining high standards… Cons: The amount of professional development provided was basically adequate, but left me wanting more guidance and support. Also, even though… Advice to Senior Management: The only feedback I can think of is that I wish the district could afford to hire more… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
