Pros

Great experience working with LD/BD students.

Cons

Staff is over worked and under appreciated. Morale among staff is low due to lack of any kind of staff recognition for working hard. Management does not train new staff.

Advice to Management

Appreciate the staff you have that work hard for the well being of the students. Train staff in the beginning rather than be demoralizing after the fact.

    Pros

    You can make a difference to underpriviledged children and help teach them new coping skills.

    Cons

    Micro managed badly. Teachers are overworked and held to double standards than to other employees. There aren't break periods. Staff expected to work straight through the day with no break and have to eat lunch with class. Preferred staff get more leeway on issues. Administration is often not qualified or competant.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage your staff and expect the company to run better. You can start by following Illinois labor codes and hiring qualified staff. Give better benefits and pay, and better communicaton of expectations. Treat staff better. Care about what they teach. You seem more concerned with your staff behaviors than those of your students.

    Pros

    -Working with LD/BD kids
    -Hands on approach
    -Admin laid back

    Cons

    -Admin too laid back, usually delegates tasks to people who are underqualified in order to just brush off tasks which leads to "too many cheifs and not enough indians environment"
    -pay is half of what other teachers and paraprofessionals get in other schools.
    -No staff appreciation or recognition no matter what the tasks completed
    -expectations and workload is high but pay and morale is low

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and advance employees who actually do the work.
