    I worked at New York City Department of Education

    Pros

    Working with the forgotten who at the time were incarcerated. The fact that you are able to impact young minds. Helping me to grow. My ability to work in different environments. The hours are great. Summers off.

    Cons

    Working with an administration that did not have any real idea of what was really going on with the population we were charged with educating. Being treated poorly by the Correction Department where our school was located. Working in bad conditions such as the air quality. Having no security for our personal belongings which were stored in lockers on Correction Department grounds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask the staff what their concerns are. Staff should be included in the formation of curriculum development.
