Good for experience, not a life-long career employer.

Intructional Staff (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

ProsNHA likes to stay current on new studies and trends in the field of education, and with a K-8 setting, you really get to know the students personally.

ConsIt is a corporation. You are not given a contract- you are an at-will employee, which is stressful. You are often serving low income and urban students who can be difficult and challenging, while often not receiving any support by administration or parents. Also - your 'prep' time is when meetings are scheduled with admin, and you have to eat lunch and supervise your students eating theirs in your classroom. No potty breaks, no time to get to the lounge for anything.

Advice to Senior ManagementTeacher turnover is important. The longer they stay with the company, the more expertise they have and can be the competent educators that corporate wants. However, with low pay and the overwhelming paperwork, and often unsupportive administration, makes this an extremely negative environment to work in. Even if higher pay cannot be accomplished, a lunch to ourselves would be nice. We often feel more like babysitters than professionals.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
