    Former Employee - Para-professional in Loganville, GA

    I worked at Gwinnett County Schools full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The benefits in GCPS are very good. You get to work some top-notched teachers and staff. You do get many resources to help you with your teaching. The use of technology is highly encouraged.

    Cons

    There are many good people working with GCPS who are motivated to serve the children to the utmost of their ability. However, there are many principals who do not help support their faculty and staff at all. Upper management does very little to correct these issues and will always side with the principal no matter how non-supportive or abusive a principal might be. I've seen many teachers and staff subjective to the abuse of a few principals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what the teachers have to say regarding a principal and working conditions.

    You have a curriculum in place, allow your teachers to teach and don't meddle if they are getting their job done.

    Pros

    This employer is very large with a variety of positions. The commute is not far for Atlanta or neighboring counties.

    Cons

    This company has many formal observations where lesson plans need to match the time of implementation. Elaborate lesson plans are required daily to perform duties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue professional development
