Pros

I'm very glad that I completed my corps commitment now that it is over. There were so many times that I wanted to quit my first year, but I survived. My perception is that the support has gotten better since I left the corps.

Cons

I really was not a good teacher my first year, I feel guilty about that, but I really did put in absolutely as much effort as was physically possible. I was a good teacher my second year and I stayed in my placement school a third year trying to make up for the damage I caused during that awful first year.

Advice to Management

I actually really like the new changes that have been implemented over the past year, I think they are setting a promising direction for the corps experience.
