Great place to work

Teacher (Current Employee)
Manassas, VA

ProsPWCS has abundant opportunities for professional development, a solid support team, and reasonable pay and benefits. Job satisfaction is going to be on a case by case basis depending on what school you work at, but I personally love my school.

ConsAs with any teaching profession, dealing with parents can be challenging. Additionally, PWCS does not have a fantastic special education program. The sped teachers are amazing, but the qualification committees seem to only want to do the paperwork and testing for kids who have vocal parents.

Advice to Senior ManagementSupport your teachers, custodians, teacher assistants, and other employees. Teaching is a difficult profession that is quite emotionally draining. Offer words of encouragement to help teachers continue to feel appreciated. Also, make sure you really are in it for the children. Don't let a child fall through the cracks just because the only person rooting for him/her is the teacher. In other word, don't just help kids with special needs who have vocal parents.
