Love the job, hate the testing!

Secondary Teacher (Current Employee) Lake Worth, FL

ProsDiversity of staff and students!
Professional development opportunities
Getting to teach what you love.
Vacation time
Some school environments are welcoming and fun to work in (depends on school administration)
Technology use is encouraged.

ConsHaven't had a raise in 4 years, please bring back our steps!

There is a shift from helping the students learn what they need to be successful after graduation to acquiring points that will improve the school grade. Students are not being seen as individuals but as numbers and placed in classes where they shouldn't be just so the school can earn more points. Its to the point where schools just get points for having kids in an AP or Industry Certification classes just so the school can get the extra points for the FCAT grade, even if the kids aren't ready or interested in the course. Making the "average student" (not to mention the below average) ultimately hate school and just try to pass the test to get the bad experience over with.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to keep good teachers in the classroom for more than 3 years, you should give them their steps! We need to find a better way of tracking student progress. Students spend more time testing than they do learning.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
