Wake County Public School System

Teacher (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

ProsGood colleagues, lots of trainings, big push for technology in classrooms and schools of all types (Smart Boards, Promethean Boards, iPads, laptops, VoiceThread, etc)

ConsDoes not give "steps" for experience each year in pay, too many programs to keep up with for accountability (leaves teachers scrambling to keep up with all the "paperwork", which takes enthusiasm out of teaching students)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
