    Former Employee - Teacher in New Haven, CT

    I worked at New Haven Public Schools as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    90% of students demonstrated improved reading ability from below grade level to at or above grade level over a single academic year.

    Cons

    Resources not always available to meet comprehensive needs of school population, which was predominantly from a very low, socio-economic level and representative of the Achievement Gap in America..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your highly educated workforce and do not approach professionals with punitive approaches to job review. Look to models where Coaches and teachers work together and set goals in order to more effectively meet challenges. Teachers have been shown to be less defensive of their methods when a team approach was used and their input was considered.

    I have been working at New Haven Public Schools full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefit package, laid back environment and some supervisors are easy-going. Is a good place for someone at entry level. The work week is 35 hours with an hour lunch break and 2 - 15 minute breaks. Free parking, fitness room and snack machines available to employees.

    Cons

    Heavy workload without comparable compensation. Not a good place to work if one is looking for advancement. Advancement is very difficult and little to no reward for hard workers. Too many employees in an office/work area. Favoritism is given to some clerks/secretaries. Work load is the same as an administrative assistant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support staff (secretaries/clerks) should be paid based on their experience and knowledge as well as appreciated more
