    Former Employee - Special Ed Teacher in Lawrence, MA
    Former Employee - Special Ed Teacher in Lawrence, MA

    I worked at Lawrence Public Schools full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Developing relationships that help at risk students succeed. Professional interactions with other teachers, an support staff, to insure a student is able to develop strengths to overcome their disability

    Cons

    Administrators use to support staff. There is no support for development of behavior management strategies. The principal, during my last year, violated IEP's by merging 2 resource rooms with the reasoning that" Lawrence was out of compliance so what difference does it make". The receiver knew about the violation and it continued

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Test scores and being concerned with how things "Look", cannot be the only priority

    Doesn't Recommend
